Cambodian Workers End
Thousands of Cambodian garment workers have gone back to work after striking to demand a $50 bonus in return for shunning walkouts in the kingdom's lucrative but troubled garment sector, a union leader said Monday.
Some 20,000 workers at around 30 factories near the Vietnamese border went on strike demanding the bonus after two factories rewarded employees for not participating in recent walkouts, which routinely cripple the industry.
"Most of the workers have resumed their work, and only those at three factories are still on strike on Monday," Pav Sina, president of the Collective Union of Movement of Workers said.
He said the factories did not agree to pay the $50 bonus, but reassured workers that they will "find a solution" to the dispute.
A police chief in eastern Bavet city, where the factories are based in two special economic zones, confirmed the workers were back at work.
The Garment Manufacturers Association of Cambodia (GMAC) has repeatedly denied factories had promised to pay workers for not striking.
In a statement on its website the GMAC said the strike stopped production at the factories, although it did not say how much it cost the firms or if they were making garments for international brands.
GMAC said the employers would not pay wages and other benefits for the days lost to the strike -- in line with local labour law.
But unionists warned that may trigger new walkouts.
About 650,000 workers provide the backbone of Cambodia's multi-billion dollar garment industry -- a key source of foreign income for the impoverished Southeast Asian nation.
Garment workers have been at the forefront of labour protests for higher wages and have faced several crackdowns by Cambodian authorities.
At least four civilians were killed in early January when police opened fire on protesting textile factory workers who were calling for a minimum wage of $160 a month to make clothes for brands including Gap, Nike and H&M.
Twenty-three of those arrested during the crackdown went on trial last month, despite international appeals for their release.

Dustin Olive Takes The Field for Alzheimer’s Research
Honey’s Place Inc. very own Dustin Olive will lead the defensive team in Alzheimer’s Association Blondes vs. Brunettes Women’s Flag football team. Money raised for this event will go towards education, care and support of those living with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers. The campaign goal is to raise $35,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association.

Alzheimer's is the sixth leading cause of death in the US, and more than 5 million Americans are living with the disease every day. It is the only cause of death among the top 10 in the US without a way to prevent it, cure it or even slow its progression. By 2025, the number of people age 65 and older with Alzheimer's disease is estimated to reach 7.1 million, a 40% increase from the 5 million age 65 and older currently affected.
“My Grandfather, and mentor growing up suffered from this horrible disease. I watched him go from a brilliant man, with amazing charisma and intellect, to someone that could barely feed himself”, stated Honey’s Place, Inc. Director or Operation’s Dustin Olive. “His deterioration was swift and sudden, only to end in his death two short years later. This pained me greatly knowing what he was to me, and so many others he touched in his life.” “Win or lose” Dustin added, “my true goal is a world without Alzheimer’s. With this cause I get to combine the love I have for my Grandfather, and my love for the game of football.”
If you would like to cheer for Dustin and Team Blondes on game day, kick-Off is at 2pm on May 31st at Fairfax High School in Hollywood, CA. The ladies may be competing for the title, but in the end everyone works together to help the Alzheimer’s Association of Los Angeles to move closer in obtaining their charitable goals. All help is greatly appreciated. Honey’s Place Inc. will match 100 percent of the proceeds donated by their employees. Those interested in supporting Team Blondes may visit their page and make a donation.
