Unions take flyer on mass action

The Cambodian Alliance of Trade Unions will hand out the first of more than 60,000 pamphlets to factory workers today as it encourages them to demand a significant wage increase and to strike if their plea is ignored.

CATU president Yang Sophorn said the campaign would reach workers across the country and run until April.

Workers would be encouraged to demand a wage rise from US$61 to $120 a month, monthly travelling expenses of $15 per worker, a monthly bonus of $12 and a daily lunch allowance of $1, she said, adding that if they failed to get a resolution they would “lead a mass demonstration”.

Cambodian Confederation of Unions president Rong Chhun said he strongly supported the CATU campaign and would raise CATU’s demands with the government.
