Workers at Sun Well to come back

Nearly 1,000 workers from the Sun Well Shoes factory in Phnom Penh are to return to work today after protesting for more than two weeks, officials said, while four union members have been summonsed to court for questioning over the strike.

Seang Sambath, president of the Worker Friendship Union Federation, said yesterday that a five-hour negotiation session between union, company and Ministry of Labour officials settled the dispute.

“The workers agreed to return to work tomorrow because the company accepted the points that the workers demanded,” he said, adding that the deal included providing protective clothing such as gloves, and a promise to pay half-wages for the demonstration period.

But the row will continue, as four union officials have been summonsed to appear in court today for questioning about a factory complaint related to property destruction during the protest. Sun Well could not be reached for comment.
