Kampong Speu: On 8 January 2019, about 270 workers were locked out of a factory in Rokar Thom Village, Chbar Morn City, Kampong Speu Province. They had arrived to work as normal after Monday’s holiday, but by 8 am, nobody had opened the gates.
The Inspectorate of Labor and Vocational Training of Kampong Speu Province, visited the company (Yi Yin Gang ) and found the premises were locked and discovered much of the stock had been moved out. The factory produced garments for export.
The owners had also disappeared just two days before salary day.
Workers are now worried about their situation, especially as many have to pay back micro-finance loans from the wages.
