Where is the law?

Articles in The Phnom Penh Post on July 26 and 28 on the protests by women beer promoters made me greatly disappointed in Cambrew Ltd for its exploitative practices and disrespect for Cambodian labour law.

Cambrew is one of the largest breweries in Cambodia, and we, as Cambodian citizens and your customers, feel proud of the company’s motto, “My Country, My Beer” and the latest promotion song, This is Khmer’s Heart.  But we cannot continue to drink Angkor beer, Angkor Extra Stout, Bayon beer, Black Panther, Klang beer and other Cambrew products that are produced and promoted under the exploitation and violation of workers’ rights.

As an Angkor Beer consumer with a Khmer heart, I strongly urge Cambrew to take immediate and appropriate action to comply with the ruling of the Arbitration Council to provide fair compensation and double the Sunday overtime wage of the beer promoters.

Moreover, we insist that Cambrew Ltd adheres to the workers’ rights under Cambodian labour law. If this does not happen, I and my networks will continue to boycott all products of Cambrew Ltd, as we cannot swallow beers that have the taste of exploitation.
