About 500 workers from Wai Full Garments (Cambodia) Ltd in Kandal province gathered yesterday to protest Saturday’s firing of a worker who wanted to form a union, a Free Trade Union said.
FTU official Thorn Thol said that workers also wanted an US$18 monthly attendance bonus, a $1 bonus for working on Sundays and holidays, a nurse to provide treatment to sick workers, sick pay and freedom from wrongful termination.
Fired worker Eoun Samnang was sure he was a victim, saying “the factory discriminates against the union”.
According to Samnang, negotiations will take place today.
Wai Full representatives could not be reached for comment.
