In Brief: Union wants break for voter signup

The Free Trade Union of Workers of the Kingdom of Cambodia sent a letter to the Ministry of Labour on Tuesday asking that workers be given time off to register their names in voter lists by the October 20 deadline. Signed by union President Chea Mony, the letter asked that staff be allowed to return to their hometowns without having their salaries or bonuses cut. Um Mean, a secretary of state at the Ministry of Labour, warned that existing employment laws make no such provisions. “Workers have to manage time or deal with the problem themselves,” he said.
