Manufacturers contest garment buyers’ labour rights complaint

The Garment Manufacturers Association in Cambodia (GMAC) on Thursday said the letter written by apparel brands and labour rights organisations addressed to Prime Minister Hun Sen reflected a “flawed analysis” of the Kingdom’s situation.

The letter, it said, could bring to reality, the potential loss of the EU’s Everything But Arms (EBA) scheme and the US’ Generalised System of Preferences (GSP).

GMAC’s response came after more than 20 brands and associations last week wrote a letter calling on Hun Sen to amend the Trade Union Law, repeal the law on associations and NGOs, drop all outstanding criminal charges against union leaders and respect and foster the important role of the Arbitration Council.
