Tack fat employees to go back to work

More than 1,800 workers at Tack Fat garment factory are set to resume their jobs next week, union officials said Sunday. The news comes despite the fact that the workers and the factory owners still have not resolved how much the laid-off employees should have been paid during a forced two-month break in operations. Meas Samphors, a representative with the Coalition of Cambodian Apparel Workers Democratic Unions, said the workers plan to be back on the job December 8. The factory closed with no advance warning in October, with owners blaming a shortfall in garment orders.
