New Cambodia Trade Union Law Provokes Unrest

Moeun Tola, who heads the labor rights group Central, said the ILO's seal of approval was crucial to the garment sector, which employs some 700,000 workers, mostly young women.
"The draft law is definitely unconstitutional and against the conventions. So when the law violates the Constitution and conventions, it will impact the international brands as well," he said.
"Because the brands, when they talk to consumers in the U.S. or E.U., they say Cambodia has good laws. But when there is the law that violates the Constitution, that will undermine the trust they have with consumers."
