PHNOM PENH (Cambodia Herald) - Ford Glory (Cambodia) Manufacturing Ltd has deployed two military parachutists to intimidate 100 striking workers, a union leader said Wednesday.
The unionist, who asked not to be named, said the two soldiers from Brigade Number 911 were associates of the company's administrative manager Dang Lort.
He said the intimidated workers went back to work but disagreed with the military tactics.
The unionist said the factory management was linked to the ruling Cambodian People’s Party and that the two soldiers risked ruining the party's name.
Ford Glory, located in Trea village in Stueng Meanchey commune in Meanchey district, employs about 500 workers to make baby garments, coats, knitted shirts and pants.
