Strike to continue after meetings fail at factory

More than 4,000 Sabrina garment factory workers said they would continue to strike after meetings with the factory failed yesterday. Workers stopped blocking National Road 4 when government officials arrived to lead negotiations, but in the meetings that followed, the factory refused to accept any of the workers’ demands, including an increase of basic monthly salaries to $94, overtime pay and $1 per day for lunch.

“The employers suggested they had no ability to carry out the demand,” said Thorn Thol, deputy secretary-general of the Free Trade Union.
