Retail Council of Canada’s response to violence and civil unrest in Cambodia

Syndicated from: Retail Council of Canada – All updates

Retail Council of Canada’s response to violence and civil unrest in Cambodia PrintJanuary 15, 2014Retail Council of Canada’s members were very concerned to hear about the violence and civil unrest on January 3, 2014, linked to the ongoing ntionwide strike for increased minimum wages, which led to four people dead and 29 people injured. RCC unequivocally calls for all parties, including government, manufacturers, and trade unions, to exercise maximum restraint and refrain from the use of force or violence.  We encourage all relevant parties in Cambodia to engage in good-faith negotiations to bring about a long term, peaceful solution.  We also endorse and support the development of a regularly-scheduled minimum wage review mechanism based on international best practices. We are committed to the security and safety of our members’ supplier factory workers, the long term stability of the Cambodian garment industry, and the long term development of the country, and therefore call on all parties to immediately and peacefully resolve this dispute. UPDATE: RCC, along with four other trade associations in North America, have issued this letter to government officials (January 15, 2014)
