The government’s minimum wage-setting group, the Labour Advisory Committee, is due to convene on Thursday to decide on the garment sector’s minimum wage for next year, according to a document shared by employers.
The document, which was posted on the Garment Manufacturers Association in Cambodia’s Facebook page yesterday, means that employers and unions will have to reach a consensus figure to send to the LAC during tripartite talks today.
If a consensus fails to come about, the figure will be decided by secret ballot and then forwarded to the LAC, which holds the final say over the wage.
Minister of Labor Ith Samheng yesterday said that a final figure would be announced before the Pchum Ben holidays next week.
