TELL KINGS LAND THAT UNION RIGHTS ARE HUMAN RIGHTS:
The Clean Clothes Campaign has launched another Internet appeal. Down Cambodia way the workers at the Kings Land Garment Company have formed an union, the Garment Workers' Democratic Union, last July. Since then the company has stonewalled , reneging on an agreement they made on October 24th and refusing to implement an arbitration council hearing award passed on December 12th. The workers at this company have been on strike since January 11th, and they are calling on international supporters to email the company to demand that management relent, recognize the union and reinstate 18 workers who have been illegally dismissed since the union was formed.
