Exclusive comment: Cambodia workers strike at Adidas shoe factory

The Clean Clothes Campaign has revealed union leaders were arrested following a strike by Cambodian garment workers at an Adidas shoe factory last week allegedly due to poor working conditions.

The Clean Clothes Campaign, which focuses on improving conditions for garment workers, reported that over 5,600 garment workers in Cambodia supported a strike at a supplier to global sports brand Adidas on 1 June.

The campaign group says over 1,000 workers rallied outside the Can Sports shoe factory in Samakki Meanchey district, Cambodia and presented a list of 35 demands.

The demands included payment of delayed wages and overtime and tackling what is described as concerning access to food vendors to address hunger and exhaustion experienced by the workers during their shifts.
