Canadia agrees to pay half of late bonuses

Former employees of a garment factory whose owner skipped town, ceasing operation without warning last month, are to receive half the bonuses owed to them today.

Canadia Industrial Park, where Hong Kong Yu Feng factory is located, will pay more than $30,000 to the 404 employees owed seniority, attendance and other bonuses after a Monday negotiation, said Liv Tharin, president of the Independent Youth Trade Union.

Canadia Bank, which has no ties to the industrial park, recently paid about $100,000 to cover workers’ wages. A secretary for Canadia Bank board chairman Pung Kheav has said they paid salaries to avoid chaos at the industrial park.
