Garment workers go on strike

More than 2,000 workers from four garment factories in Phnom Penh and Kandal and Kampong Speu provinces protested for better treatment yesterday.

In Kandal’s Ang Snuol district, more than 500 workers picketed to ask the Tae Young Co factory to rehire 16 fired workers and drop its suit against eight of them for inciting a strike.

Meanwhile, about 800 workers marched to demand a minimum wage, lunch, transportation to work and various bonuses, worker Soun Sop-heap said yesterday.

About 500 workers also held strikes to demand better conditions at the Seung Sing Yien factory in Phnom Penh and at the Fabric Art factory in Kampong Speu.
