Workers demand four be sacked

More than 300 workers took to the street outside the SH factory in the capital’s Por Sen Chey district yesterday to demand better working conditions and the sacking of four employees.

Lay Sokha, a worker representative and vice-president of the Free Trade Union at the factory, in Choam Chao commune, said demands included that management fire two administration officers and two sewing line leaders, that it pay workers a $10 monthly transportation allowance, a $10 incentive bonus and a basic salary of $70.

“All workers have vowed to strike in front of the company until there is a resolution.”

If the group stays true to these words, they could be on strike for some time after Un Sophoeun, administration chief of SH factory, said the workers’ demands were “impossible”.

“The company had no capacity to offer the workers what they are requesting,” he said.

“It is an unreasonable set of requests,” he said.

The workers have vowing to continue striking this morning.
