Labor Unions Call For Gov’t To Reconsider Trade Union Law Amendments

Cambodian and international civil society organizations released a statement Wednesday urging Prime Minister Hun Sen to reconsider recently-passed amendments to the Trade Union Law, which they said failed to bring the law up to global labor standards.

The Law on Trade Unions was passed in 2016, amid wide criticism for infringing on the rights of workers and unions. Following the passage of the amendments by the government, civil society groups and trade unions have alleged that their recommendations were ignored nor were they adequately consulted.

The amendments to 10 articles of the law were passed by the National Assembly in November, the Senate last week and are now awaiting the King’s assent.
