Eleven workers from a printing shop in Phnom Penh’s Dangkor district are seeking the help of a workers union after being fired from their positions in the wake of demanding their promised bonuses.
Huy Sambath, president of the Cambodian Workers Union Federation, said the workers reached out to him for help after being dismissed earlier this week from RedPoint Printing.
“The company ended their contracts and they came to ask our union to intervene to solve the problem for them,” he said.
According to a letter that the workers sent to Mr Sambath, they were seeking their seniority bonuses and trying to put a stop to one-month contracts prior to being fired.
Contacted yesterday, RedPoint administration manager Prum Sotheavy confirmed the 11 workers were dismissed, but declined to comment further.
