Nike, IndustriALL intervention reinstates Cambodia garment factory union leaders

Cambodian garment manufacturer T-win has reinstated eight local union leaders affiliated with the Collective Union of Movement of Workers (CUMW) following interventions from US fashion brand Nike and the IndustriALL Global Union.

IndustriALL says the union leaders were forced to resign from their positions after the formation of a local union and the election of ten union officials from CUMW at T-Win Garment in Takeo province.

After two of the CUMW leaders refused to resign (Horn Sophoeurn and Koeurng Ngieng), the company dismissed them on 10 February. Four days later, the remaining eight unionists were also dismissed after refusing to resign from the union, according to IndustriALL.

Despite attending mediation meetings and filing a complaint with the authority, IndustriALL says the company management refused to reinstate the workers.
