Protesters destroy factory property in Phnom Penh

A strike involving 200 workers at the Nex-T Apparel factory in Phnom Penh turned destructive on Saturday when angry protesters broke several items in the factory.

Nex-T manager Chea Sovann Chansambath said yesterday that workers destroyed office windows, bikes, cupboards, flower pots and other items.

“The workers have a legal right to protest, but on Saturday they broke national and international law,” she said, adding that she did not know whether the company would file a complaint against the strikers.

Workers say they will continue striking on Monday to demand better work conditions, that the company treat them with more respect and that it reinstate three fired union members.
