CAMBODIA: Gap calls for probe into supplier strike

US retailer Gap Inc says it has “demanded an immediate investigation” in response to allegations of harassment at one of its suppliers in Cambodia. A strike at the Ocean Garment Factory in Phnom Penh has now entered its third week, despite a court ordering the 2,500 protestors to return to work. The unrest began on 11 August after six female employees accused their Bangladeshi manager of sexual harassment. In a statement sent to just-style, Gap Inc says: “Sexual harassment is absolutely unacceptable,” adding that it is a serious violation of the retailer’s code of vendor conduct.
