Sky Nice factory agrees to workers' demands

After two days of protests by about 300 workers, the Sky Nice International footwear factory in Phnom Penh has agreed to meet most of their demands – which included better benefits and wages.

The employees’ main request was the reinstatement of three worker representatives. A company representative said Sky Nice had agreed to rehire two of the leaders and would consider reinstating the third.

The protesters have agreed to return to work today.
