The Fair Labor Association (FLA), Fair Wear Foundation, Social Accountability International, and five affiliates sourcing from Cambodia have written to the Cambodian prime minister, expressing concern about recent developments related to the country’s minimum wage law, arbitration council, trade union law, and commitment to workers’ freedom of association.
