Factory reopens amid strike

A packaging factory is back in business, opening its doors after about 200 former employees stopped blocking shipments, which they had been doing since Saturday.

Factory management at Harta Packaging Industries acquiesced to a negotiation session with the group, which has been protesting against the company for allegedly not paying seniority bonuses out when the factory changed ownership.

“Our factory wants to go on with our business and the court process is too slow,” So Pheakdey, a manager at the factory, said yesterday. “That’s why the company decided to negotiate out of the court system with the workers by taking all the problems and put on the table to find resolution.”

Sar Bora, a, Harta production manager and president of the Workers Friendship Union there, said strikers will continue unless seniority bonuses are paid and complaints filed in court dropped.

“If the company rejects our terms, we will start blocking the gate again,” Bora said.
