PHNOM PENH, Cambodia— The International Labour Organization’s (ILO) Better Factories Cambodia in cooperation with Radio Mohanokor FM 93.5MHz is launching the 3rd radio competition allowing garment workers to express their knowledge and experience pertaining to the Cambodian Labour Law.
This initiative has a strong educational potential and is aimed to send a positive message to workers that the knowledge of the Cambodian labour law is important and useful in their daily working lives, while advocating for effective labour law implementation and promoting the industry.
“The competition will not be only the platform for the selected applicants to challenge one another about the Cambodian Labour Law, but also it can disseminate the information to a number of listeners, especially garment workers,” said Ms Jill Tucker, Chief Technical Advisor for ILO-Better Factories Cambodia.
“Exploring more understanding about the Labour Law will give the workers additional benefits, and eventually will contribute to good workplace cooperation and sound industrial relations,” added Ms Jill Tucker.
The competition is open for free to all current and former garment workers. Submissions will be received from today until 29 June 2012. Application forms are being distributed to garment factories and can also be obtained from ILO’s Better Factories Cambodia office. Application forms are also available at www.betterfactories.org or at the radio station.
18 candidates will be selected to compete with one another in front of a jury panel during live broadcast on Radio Mohanokor FM93.5MHz. The event will be aired every Saturday from 2-3 pm from 28 July to 29 September 2012. The first winner will be awarded with $200, and a LCD TV, while the second runner will receive $150 and a sewing machine, and the third winner will obtain $100, and a mobile phone, plus a certificate of recognition for each.
