PHNOM PENH – The Garment Manufacturers Association in Cambodia (GMAC) has denied accusations from the Cambodia Confederation of Union (CCU) that member factories have failed to implement preventative measures against the spread of coronavirus, describing the allegation “baseless”.
Earlier this week the CCU claimed that many industrial employers haven’t adopted best practice health and safety measures despite the virus outbreak. “Without specific preventative measures, workers could be at high risk for virus infection,” it said.
The GMAC has refuted these allegations and believes they “discredit all the big efforts of the government and employers. The CCU’s statement is counter-productive and meaningless. It is an attempt to project a negative image of Cambodia.”
