Ocean reps take case to arbitration

Twenty representatives of workers locked in a monthlong dispute with management at the Ocean Garment factory appeared before the Arbitration Council yesterday, a union official said.

“It will take one week for this hearing and we are waiting to see the result before we hold a big strike again,” Collective Union of Movement of Workers secretary-general Chheng Chhoan said.

A spokesman from the Arbitration Council yesterday told the Post that such cases are typically sorted out within 15 working days.

More than 1,000 Ocean employees began protesting at the factory in Phnom Penh’s Dangkor district on May 24, when management announced it would stop production for one month due to a lack of orders, a period for which they would pay workers only $15.

Workers are demanding they receive their full salary.

Officials from Ocean Garment could not be reached for comment yesterday.
