Grand Twins workers to strike anew

Striking workers at Cambodia’s only publicly listed garment factory yesterday said about 5,000 employees will hold a demonstration at the Phnom Penh business tomorrow after failing to achieve their demands.

A majority of employees at Grand Twins International – whose main buyer is Adidas – went to work on Saturday, their payday, but were upset to find their salaries docked for days missed from work, worker representative Kao Vannet said yesterday. They were also frustrated to find their demands, including a 5,000-riel daily lunch allowance and $15 per month for travel and accommodation, still unmet.

“All workers will come out to protest in front of the factory again on Tuesday to demand some points that the factory did not accept,” Vannet said.

Dissapointed with the continued strike following a court injunction, Grand Twins strategy manager David Liu yesterday said local authorities must take more action.
