Unpaid workers told to delay their protests

Officials from the Committee for Demonstrations and Strikes recommended yesterday that laid off workers from the Supertex garment factory delay planned protests over compensation until the government has had a chance to negotiate a resolution. On Thursday the Arbitration Council issued an order requiring the factory boss to compensate the former employees for their unpaid wages from previous months.

Nguon Vanna, president of the Khmer Workers’ Union at Supertex, said: “The government asked the workers not to hold a protest to allow for the company to have time to resolve this matter.” Supertex employees staged their first strike on June 10 after the factory boss failed to pay their wages for the month of May.
