Unions appeal to Hun Sen’s cabinet to ensure seniority indemnity payments

More than 40 representatives from 21 unions and associations on July 13 submitted a petition to Prime Minister Hun Sen’s cabinet asking that it intervene to urge employers to provide annual seniority indemnity payments to workers for 2019 and 2020.

The move comes after the Labor Ministry failed to respond to a similar petition that 14 unions had jointly submitted to the ministry last month as a result of its decision to allow companies to delay the payments until 2021.

Yang Sophorn, president of the Cambodian Alliance of Trade Unions (CATU), said that 21 unions and associations covering the garment, footwear, tourism, entertainment and construction sectors as well as informal economy, were seeking the prime minister’s cabinet’s help in urging the ministry to review its recent decision to allow companies to delay workers’ seniority indemnity payments.
