Workers resume protest at shoe factory

More than 200 workers from the Shimano footwear factory in Kampong Speu province protested outside the factory for a third day yesterday to demand that their employer reinstate three sacked union representatives. Uk Kheng, a Free Trade Union official at the factory, said yesterday that workers continued to burn tyres and demonstrate outside the building. Uk Kheng claimed this week that factory representatives had wrongly stated that workers thumbprinted a document requesting that the three men be fired. He said that, in fact, workers had submitted a request for additional benefits. Factory administration chief Touch Manin said yesterday that the three workers’ contracts had ended and that they were provided with compensation.
