About 100 employees who were prevented from protesting on Monday after they were locked inside the Singaporean-owned Bright Sky factory in Phnom Penh took their case to the Ministry of Labour yesterday.

Tep Ton, president of the Workers Development Union Federation, said the workers were concerned about losing their jobs after the factory, located in Por Sen Chey district, moved from producing garments to bags and wanted the ministry to intervene.

“Now the ministry has ordered all sides to have a meeting and to sit down with each other to find a solution,” he said, adding that the meeting would be held today.

Striking workers claimed yesterday that work had slowed at the company and they had been threatened with dismissal if they continued to protest.

“The company has less jobs to give to the workers, that is why the workers think that the company isn’t producing now,” said striking worker Chan Na.

“The company must tell the workers about the company’s situation, whether it will close or [continue] production.” The company could not be reached for comment yesterday.
