Workers at a Preah Sihanouk province garment factory plan to march to Provincial Hall today, after negotiations fell apart between management and employees demanding the reinstatement of five workers sacked for declining overtime work.
The strike at Pollysa (Cambodia) Home Textile factory began on Wednesday, two days after the workers were terminated for declining to work overtime hours, said Pav Sina, president of the Collective Union of Movement of Workers (CUMW).
More than 200 workers protesting the firings demand a total of 17 points, including a daily 2,000 riel ($0.50) food allowance during overtime worked and for management to treat workers in a more respectful manner, Sina said.
Officials from Pollysa could not be reached for comment.
Provincial Labour Department director Yov Khemera yesterday said the case will be submitted to the Aribtration Council.
