Cambodia: Negotiations between a factory and workers' representatives is cancelled because a factory management team does not show up

"No show by W&D management at meeting with workers", 8 March 2019

Planned negotiations between W&D Cambodia Co Ltd and its workers’ representatives ... over a labour dispute were scuttled because the management’s team did not show up.

Chea Sokpha, a representative of the workers, said that the meeting at Meanchey District Hall did not yield any results because the company did not send any representatives...

“We have stopped believing that any solution can be found because they [the management] keeps delaying meeting us,” Ms Sokpha said. “Both the authorities and company keep blaming the workers for the dispute.”

... A worker, who declined to be named, ... said that management did not appear to want to negotiate with them.

“They keep delaying and want to reschedule the meeting to Monday,” he said. “We cannot keep waiting for a meeting because some of the sacked workers have been evicted by their landlords because they could not afford to pay rent.”...
