Workers protest firing at Wai Full Garments

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.
