Sweet maker in bitter dispute with workers

About 300 workers are set to strike in front of the Lim Heang Yu Enterprise, in Kampong Speu province, tomorrow to demand the reinstatement of eight workers fired by the cake and sweet manufacturer.

Sar Mora, president of the Cambodian Food and Serv-ice Workers’ Federation, said yesterday employees would gather in front of the firm’s office in Odong district to demand that the fired workers be rehired, that men and women staff receive equal pay, that overtime be halted and that national holidays be given off.

“We have decided to send a prior-notice letter for the workers’ strike that will be take place on Tuesday,” Sar Mora said.

“We will announce the suspension of our strike if the relevant officials and enterprise officials inform us that they want to negotiate.”

Sacked Lim Heang Yu Enterprise worker Chhun Samphors, 21, said yesterday he and fellow workers had been fired after they registered as union members.

He said they were within their rights to join a union.

Oudong district governor Pol Noa said yesterday he was not aware of the strike.

Officials of the Lim Heang Yu Enterprise could not be reached for comment on the strike threat yesterday.
