The workers and management of the Chiang Sou undergarments factory in Kampong Speu failed to reach a resolution yesterday despite hours of attempted negotiations, only a day after nearly 200 employees went on strike demanding better working conditions.
Than Thol, an officer for the Free Trade Union of Cambodia, said the management refused to accept any of the 13 points proposed by their employees.
“I will continue to support the workers,” he said yesterday.
Director of the provincial labour office Chek Borin said both sides would meet for a second round of negotiations today, where he would represent the workers.
