International labor confederations IndustriALL, UNI Global Union and the ITUC have joined forces with 30 global brands like Walmart and Adidas calling on the Cambodian government to investigate the use of military deadly force against striking garment workers. Earlier this month four people were killed when assault rifles were used by government forces to gun them down during a protest. The global unions want justice for the killings and the brands and the unions also want labor negotiations re-launched to improve the wages and working conditions of Cambodian garment workers.
