Kandal Governor Promises Solution to Monthslong Garment Worker Dispute

The Kandal provincial governor on Monday vowed to find a solution for workers of the Dignity Knitter and Eco Base garment factories after hundreds of workers marched to Prime Minister Hun Sen’s Takhmao home to protest the factories’ failure to compensate out-of-work employees.

More than 500 workers participated in a march from the Dignity Knitter and Eco Base factories in Takhmao City’s Sitbou commune because the owner of the factories has not compensated workers for wages or benefits as agreed upon in a settlement after the factories’ closure in April.

The workers had intended to march from the factories and file petitions to the provincial court and then Hun Sen’s home on Monday, but they were stopped by authorities after traveling about 15 kilometers before reaching their intended destination.
