SINGAPORE — A three-day strike by Cambodian workers at a Malaysian garment factory ended peacefully Thursday, Malaysian workers rights activists said. This bout of industrial action, which took place in the southern Malaysian state of Johor, is the most recent in a series of strikes undertaken by Cambodian garment industry workers.

Cambodian employees at Honsin Apparel Sdn Bhd went on strike after some workers were allegedly locked in the company’s plant after rejecting a new contract, according to Aegile Fernandez, a consultant at Tenaganita, the workers' rights group that helped negotiate a settlement between the workers and the factory. She said that 196 Cambodian workers took part in the strike. She added that an undetermined number of Indonesian and Nepalese workers also went on strike Tuesday, but returned to work earlier after interventions by their respective country’s diplomatic missions.
