Apparel buyers urge Cambodian government to address key issues


Some of the biggest buyers in Cambodia’s clothing sector have urged Prime Minister Hun Sen to address issues faced by unions and workers.

The letter sent in January was signed by Adidas, Esprit, Levi Strauss and Puma, among others, including labour rights organisations American Apparel & Footwear Association and CNV International.

The letter requested the prime minister to address four key issues in the sector: amend the trade union law, repeal the law on associations and non-governmental organisations, drop all outstanding criminal charges against union leaders, and respect and foster the important role of the Arbitration Council.
