Tack Fat strike looms

SEVEN unions representing workers at Phnom Penh’s Tack Fat Garment Factory said requests that the factory end their contracts and grant workers severance pay fell on deaf ears during a meeting on Wednesday, with management repeating that last month’s closure is only temporary.

“The factory agreed to offer each worker US$12 per month for the three months they suspended their job and said it was not able to pay more than that, said Kim Dich, a representative of Ponleu Thmey union.”

Meas Samphors, head of the Coalition of Cambodian Apparel Workers Democratic Unions, said workers would strike today. Tack Fat representatives could not be reached for comment Wednesday.
