Workers’ march halted

For the second time this week, hundreds of garment workers were blocked yesterday from marching from their Por Sen Chey district factory to the Ministry of Labour to call for its intervention after a hefty wage cut instated last month.

Ocean Garment factory staff cited insufficient orders as the reason why workers would receive only $15 a month between May 24 and June 26.Since February, men and women staffing garment factories throughout the country have earned a minimum wage of $100 per month.

Ocean Garment workers are demanding full payment during the month-long suspension.

Negotiations between workers and factory staff followed the blocked march, but no resolution was reached, said Pav Sina, president of the Collective Union of Movement of Workers, which represents workers at Ocean Garment.
