In Brief: Seminar aims to get workers organised

Cambodia's hard-hat construction workers are getting hard-nosed about their rights, pay and working conditions. The Cambodian Construction Workers Trade Union Federation held a three-day seminar on October 19-21 at the Freedom Hotel in Siem Reap. The seminar was conducted for the Federation by Building and Woodworkers International, a building workers solidarity organisation, and LO Norway, Norway's largest and most influential workers' organisation. Van Tol, director of the Cambodian Construction Workers Trade Union Federation, told the Post that the seminar helped Cambodian workers by showing them how to establish union membership in their community, and advising them of entitlements like annual leave, public holidays, accident insurance, and paid maternity leave.
