Ministry upholds firing of union leader, activist at Siem Reap factory

The Labor Ministry on September 11 upheld the decision by Pactics garment factory management to fire a union leader and union activist in June, saying the dismissals were legal.

Touch Kosal, president of the Cambodia Tourism Workers’ Union Federation, confirmed that the ministry had decided to uphold the terminations after a dispute between the union and owners had led to more than a week of strikes starting in late August.

“Labor Minister [Ith Samheng] agreed with the decision of the provincial labor department to support the factory in firing a union leader and a union activist,” Kosal said.
