Over 100 MA Handbag Workers Petition Ministry of Labor for Intervention

Phnom Penh: In a recent development in Phnom Penh, over 100 employees of MA Handbag (Cambodia) Co, LTD. took action on March 26, 2024, by submitting a petition to the Ministry of Labor and Vocational Training. The petition seeks intervention in a concerning situation where the factory owner has reportedly absconded without fulfilling compensation obligations as mandated by labor laws.

Yesterday, a gathering of over 150 workers assembled outside the premises of MA Handbag (Cambodia) Co, LTD. as reports emerged that the owner was preparing to leave without settling the workers' entitlements in compliance with labor regulations.

The MA Handbag (Cambodia) Co., LTD. is situated along Street 41, Phnov Village, Trapeang Kong Commune, Samrong Tong District, Kampong Speu Province, employing over 150 workers

Initially, on March 8, 2024, the factory began suspending workers, followed by the commencement of unloading goods on the night of March 16-17, 2024, without honoring wage payments and other entitlements as mandated by labor regulations.

In the case of the employer who absconded from the factory, it is important to highlight that as per the disclosed information, there has been no indication of any commission appointed to oversee the liquidation of the factory's assets, and no formal notice has been issued by the factory management.
