Garment strikers ask ministry for resolution

Some 200 garment workers who have been striking for two weeks traveled from their Kandal factory to the Ministry of Social Affairs yesterday to demand a resolution.

Representatives met with officials to broker a sitdown for workers from the Master and Frank factory in Ang Snuol.

“We negotiated with the social affairs and labour ministry officials, and they told us that they will ask the company officials to meet them to end the dispute,” said representative Saom Sokhim.

Workers have been striking since December 19 demanding the reinstatement of 10 fired representatives.

Despite a court ordered injunction issued a week later, they have remained on strike.

Vong Sovann, deputy secretary general of the ministry committee for the settlement of strikes and demonstrations, said the Social Affairs Ministry called for all parties to meet yesterday, but was forced to reschedule the meeting to today after company officials asked for a one day delay.
