Garment factories: Workers reinstated after PM call

Garment factories
A GARMENT factory in Kampong Speu province yesterday gave 22 suspended employees permission to return to work in response to an appeal from Prime Minister Hun Sen, a union leader said.

In a speech on Wednesday, Hun Sen urged factory owners to reinstate workers who were suspended after participating in a large-scale strike last month.

Kin Im, a union representative at the Sangwoo factory, said he had received a letter from the factory owner yesterday instructing him and 21 other suspended union members to return to work today.

“I am very happy to return to work,” he said.
