Camboya - Four trade union leaders fired at Zhen Yun (2011)

On 15 November, the Zhen Yun garment factory in Phnom Penh dismissed four members of the Free Trade Union of Workers of the Kingdom of Cambodia (FTUWKC) who had been elected as union leaders four days earlier: the president, Seng Bora, the vice president, Kem Kimhuy, the general secretary, Moern Sina and the treasurer, Maul Srey. Following a three-day strike, the management agreed to reinstate them on the proviso that they cease all trade union activities. The four workers accepted this condition, but continued with their trade union work. On 12 December, on leaving the factory after working overtime, Seng Bora was attacked and hit in the head by a large stone. When his injuries had healed and he was able to return to work, he was once again dismissed (on 14 December), along with Kem Kimhuy (on 15 December).
