Several unions and federations boycotted a meeting with garment industry and government representatives on September 15 to discuss amendments to the Labor Law that the unions say will harm the interests of garment and footwear industry workers.

Mann Seng Hak, vice president of the Free Trade Union of Workers of the Kingdom of Cambodia (FTUWKC), said that after holding a meeting on September 14, six independent unions and union federations agreed to boycott the meeting with Labor Ministry and Garment Manufactures’ Association in Cambodia (GMAC) representatives.
