Unions urge contract action

Unions will urge the Labour Advisory Committee (LAC) to crack down on employers using fixed-term contracts to threaten workers, they said yesterday.

About 50 unions gathered to discuss fixed-term contracts, which they say deprive workers of benefits and the right to unionise.

Choun Mom Thol, president of Cambodian Union Federation, said that he had sent a letter to Labour Minister Vong Sauth, president of the Labour Advisory Committee, suggesting he confront the issue at the committee’s next meeting.

Seng Sakada, director-general of the Ministry of Labour, said he was aware of the issue.
