On the march: Days-long strike shifts to district HQ

After striking for more than a week, employees at Phnom Penh’s Sun Well Shoes yesterday marched to Por Sen Chey district hall, demanding their voices be heard.

“We protested in front of the factory for nearly 10 days, but the factory officials did not come to negotiate,” Seang Sambath, president of the Workers Friendship Union Federation (WFUF), said yesterday. “So they marched to the district hall.”

Some 300 people marched from their Veng Sreng Boulevard factory with a list of seven demands, including the firing of a manager and $15 per month for accommodation and transportation.

Deputy district governor Khem Soda told union and worker representatives that he had written a letter to Sun Well’s owner, inviting him to a negotiation meeting today. “I sent a letter to the factory calling for negotiation with workers on the points they demand,” Soda said.

Factory officials could not be reached.
