Camboya - Union leaders disregarded (2010)

A major practical problem is caused by a confusion in the law between the role of shop stewards and trade union leaders, which effectively leads to shop stewards performing functions that should be in the hands of elected union leaders. Although representative unions have the right to nominate the shop stewards, they are often elected before a union is organised at the workplace. In a number of cases, employers have used the factory representatives to block the path of unions to the bargaining table.
