Garment workers in capital wind up strikes

More than 2,000 workers from the United Imperial Cambodia garment factory in Sen Sok district will return to work today following a two-day strike after factory managers reinstated four union leaders fired earlier this month, workers said. “The factory officials fired four of us without any reason,” said Sous Chantha, one of the terminated workers. Around 8,000 workers from at least two factories also restarted work yesterday after striking for two days while demanding increased wages. Chea Mony, president of the Free Trade Union, said he will meet with the Garment Manufacturers’ Association in Cambodia to discuss their concerns today.
