Company to workers: take two


More than 400 protesting workers at In Han Sung factory in the capital’s Por Senchey district will be told this morning that their bosses have agreed to two of their demands and expect them to return to work immediately.


Workers at the factory, in Chaom Chao commune, ended their fifth day of demonstrations yesterday thinking the company had again rejected their demands.

However, Seng Savon, administrative director at In Han Sung, said late yesterday that the company has agreed to two of them.

The workers had asked the company to reinstate Bun Sokha, the factory’s union treasurer, who they said was dismissed unfairly on March 10 less than a month before his contract was due to end on April 1.

They also demanded the company pay their wages for the five days of striking.

The company has agreed to these two points.

Khath Loth, vice-director of the Collective Union of the Movement of Workers, said others demands had included a US$5 monthly bonus and the firing of administrative director Seng Savon; however, these had not be granted.

“If the result is unacceptable, the workers will continue to strike on Tuesday,” Khath Loth said before the factory’s announcement.
