PCCS workers to resume work

ABOUT 3,000 workers at a factory in Sen Sok district owned by PCCS Garments Ltd plan to temporarily resume work today after a 10-day strike, a workers’ representative said.

Workers originally walked off the job following the dismissal of Morn Channa, a union representative who was fired last month after telling management that workers did not need a doctor’s note in order to apply for leave.

Phorn Srey Pov, a representative of the workers, said the strike would be called off, but warned that workers would send a petition to the Ministry of Labour if the factory did not allow Morn Channa to return to work.

“All workers will resume work for one week and we will collect thumbprints to attach to a petition, which we will file to the Ministry of Labour ... if the factory continues to refuse to allow our representative to come back to work,” she said.

Representatives of the factory could not be reached for comment yesterday.

Chea Mony, president of the Free Trade Union of Workers of the Kingdom of Cambodia, said the factory’s management had emailed him on Friday asking him to order Morn Channa to tell the workers to call off the strike.
