Unions appeal for minimum wage talks to proceed as scheduled

The Garment Manufacturers Association in Cambodia (GMAC) issued a statement June 23 calling for minimum wage negotiations, set to take place from July to September, to be delayed until 2021.

“Cambodia as well as other countries around the world are being adversely affected by the global Covid-19 pandemic, which has caused several sectors to suffer from the unprecedented crisis,” the statement said.
