The Ministry of Labour met with Malaysian-owned Global Apparels Limited factory representatives, union officials and workers yesterday, to negotiate an agreement for compensation as the company closes down.
Earlier this month about 600 employees were terminated by the Phnom Penh factory, which is due to shut down in October.
About 40 workers marched to the ministry on Monday to submit a complaint over the compensation offered. Soth Chet, an official with the Collective Union of Movement of Workers, said no solution was reached at yesterday’s meeting.
“There is still no result,” Chet said. “They just claim that the ministry will continue to find a solution.”
Chet said 2,000 workers would continue to protest until an agreement is reached.
