Garment union will not protest wage

One of Cambodia’s most prominent garment worker unions, which had battled for a $140 minimum monthly wage in the sector, has decided not to hold street protests against the $128 figure decided by the government on Wednesday. Kong Athit, deputy president of the Coalition of Cambodian Apparel Workers’ Democratic Union (C.CAWDU) said yesterday that, while his members were not happy, they “will not do any activity on the street soon”.

“We will start to negotiate with buyers to get more attention on Cambodia’s worker wage, which remains low,” he said. The Collective Union of Movement of Workers (CUMW) also said 70 to 80 per cent of its members were satisfied with $128.
