Sweden - Cambodian workers assisted by Swedish union - December 31, 2015

The Cambodian forestry workers who were allegedly exploited by their Swedish employer will get assistance from the Swedish wood forestry workers’ union GS. The union will cover all the court costs in Sweden. The workers are now back in Cambodia where 11 of them have been tricked into signing documents stating that they owe debts to the former employer of a total of 300 000 SEK (32 373 euro), due to housing costs while staying in Sweden. The union is fighting the claim and insist that the employer instead has to pay for all unpaid wages they owe to the workers.
