Garment workers back on job after brief strike

ABOUT 500 workers from the New Wide (Cambodia) Garment Factor in Dangkor district’s Choam Chao commune returned to work after holding a brief strike yesterday morning, demanding improved working conditions. Reim Bora, president of the Federation Union of Khmer Democracy Workers, said the strike was called off after factory managers agreed to open negotiations into a list of nine workers’ demands. These included the abolition of forced overtime, a US$10 per month grant for transportation and the reinstatement of two sacked workers.
