MORE than 4,000 workers ended a four-day strike outside the M&V factory in Kampong Chhnang province yesterday after the Arbitration Council intervened, issuing an order for them to return to work. The workers, led by the Free Trade Union of Workers in the Kingdom of Cambodia, were protesting against the dismissal of 20 FTU members from the factory. However, FTU vice-president Meas Sokhen warned that workers would consider striking again if those dismissed were not reinstated. M&V administration officer Yin Nak said the company had terminated the contracts of 15 of the 20 dismissed workers. Kampong Chhnang provincial court had issued a protection order against the sacked employees, banning them from intimidating other workers, leading strikes or returning to work pending a court resolution. Provincial court prosecutor Penh Vibol could not be reached for comment yesterday.
