Garment workers' strikes pay off

The determination of 3,000 garment factory workers in Kampong Chhnang province’s M&V factory has finally paid off.

Workers will return to the factory floor today after management finally agreed to their four-point list of demands yesterday, after initially refusing to budge.

Noun Sam Ol, deputy president of the Free Trade Union at M&V, said yesterday that the factory agreed with the workers’ demands after representatives of the factory, union and labour department officials negotiated yesterday morning.

“The company agreed to give US$5 for transportation and accommodation, $2 for attendance bonus, $2 more for working on holidays and Sundays, and the last point is workers can work overtime from Monday to Friday morning,” she said.
