Honda factory protest rolls into second day

More than 90 per cent of employees at the Honda NCX factory in the capital’s Choam Chao commune protested for the second day yesterday, saying they would block the gates of the company today if there is no resolution to their grievances.

Kun Ry, vice president of the Cambodian Labour Confederation, said that nearly 500 staffers protested on the grounds that employees are being sacked for attempting to unionise.

They are also seeking improved working conditions and bonuses for senior workers, as well as asking that administrative manager Eath Seng Ny be fired for his role in the sackings.

Eath Seng Ny said yesterday that he was unaware any plan to block the entrances.

“We cannot find a resolution because they really need what they want,” he said, adding that the company was seeking a legal resolution.
