More than 100 Sinosky Hejun Garment Co Ltd workers resorted to strike in Phnom Penh for a full four hours yesterday to urge the company to take back their leader Kim Chetra and allow him to get back to work. The concerned person was fired last month for forming a union.
Mom Seak, president of the Khmer Union Federation of Workers Spirit, said that the workers were demanding that Chetra be allowed to return to work since he was fired unjustly. The company fired their leader who had recently formed a union at the factory, he said.
He added that the union was formed to help workers experiencing problems. The Chinese-owned garment factory, located in the capital’s Por Sen Chey district, makes clothing such as pants, shirts, shorts and tank-tops.
