FTU asks for benefits for fired staff

Sabrina factory

The Free Trade Union on Wednesday wrote to the Ministry of Labour asking the Labour Dispute Department to compel the Sabrina Garment factory to pay compensation and severance benefits to the nearly 300 workers the factory fired on Saturday.

FTU president Chea Mony said the Kampong Speu factory’s officials had forced workers to thumbprint resignation documents without receiving the benefits they were guaranteed under the Labour Law.

“The company is famous for five-star standards, but in fact, the company put pressure on the workers to resign. So we ask the Ministry of Labour to intervene,” he wrote in the letter.

The workers were fired after protesting the arrest of eight of their colleagues, who are accused of using violence at a demonstration that left at least 23 people injured.

The Sabrina Garment factory, a Nike supplier, could not be reached yesterday.
