Cambodian beer workers resist global giant's offensive

Saturday, 15 July 2017 -
9:00am to 9:30am

In relation to labour issues, Cambodia is often seen through the context of the exploitation of workers in its garment sector. Cambodia also has an expanding tourism industry with increasing numbers of workers employed in these sector.

We talk to Sar Mora, President of Cambodian Food and Service Workers' Federation (CFSWF), about the disputes workers are engaged in against Cambrew, a local beer producer that is part of the global giant Carslberg.

In addition to the issues of organising workers in a resource poor environment, the union is now facing legal action by the company in an attempt to bankrupt and destroy the CFSWF.
