Strikers at garment factory back to work

About 1,000 workers at Gawon Apparel Co, a Kandal-based garment manufacturer, decided to return to work on Thursday after both workers and the factory representative reached an agreement on a controversial bonus cut on the election day this weekend.

“The owner of the factory agreed not to cut the bonus of workers on the election day,” said Srey Mom, Gawon’s administration assistant.

The workers began striking on Wednesday as the factory owner issued a notice that their bonus would be cut if they took two or three days off for the election – something allowed by government directive.
