Garment strike drags on

AROUND 160 workers from the Sun Ly Fong garment factory in Meanchey district continued to strike yesterday, despite threats from local authorities that they would break up the five-day-long gathering. “The factory is not intent to solve the problem, so we will hold a long-lasting strike until there is solution, even though there are threats from the police,” said Ien Pov, a union representative at the factory. Workers have made eight demands to factory owners.
