Ford Glory workers seek better benefits

Nearly 300 workers from Ford Glory (Cambodia Manufacturing Limited] travelled to Phnom Penh Municipal Court yesterday to ask it to cancel its “protection warrant”, which would send employees back to work without the company meeting their demands for health benefits, as well as transportation and food allowances, worker representatives said.

Din Sam Ath, president of the Cambodian Federation of Labour Unions, said yesterday that Judge Duch Kimsorn told the union that the protection warrant is not effective yet, and that workers could continue their strike.

“I pity the workers who tried very hard to strike in order to demand benefits and better working conditions,” he said.

Ham Phea, a lawyer for Ford Glory, said that workers didn’t provide sufficient advance notice for the strike as required by law, and that labour laws don’t require the factory to provide the benefits demanded.
