More than 400 workers at the In Han Sung   factory, in the capital’s Choam Chao commune, had resumed their strike yesterday after management failed to meet their demands, a union official said.

Khat Lot, vice-director of the Collective Union of Movement of Workers, said workers had blocked the factory’s front gate, preventing goods being taken in and out, to pressure the company to negotiate with representatives of the workers.

They would continue striking until the company responded, he said.

The workers are striking to demand the reinstatement of union treasurer Bun Sokha, 27, and for bosses to comply with six points relating to working conditions.

In Han Sung administrative director Seoung Savorn said management would not negotiate with the workers.

Va Yuvavathana, from the Labour Ministry, said he would file documents related to the dispute with the Arbitration Council today.

Due to an editorial error, the original posting of this story incorrectly identified the striking factory as Hwa Shin Print. The correct name of the factory is In Han Sung. The Post apologizes for the error.
