Union Aid Abroad – APHEDA invites you to an online conversation celebrating global solidarity and sisterhood.
Join Melbourne APHEDA activist Lisa Zanatta (CFMEU) and APHEDA partner Ou Tep Phallin (CFSWF), for a wide-ranging zoom chat about women’s rights, activism and union campaigns in Cambodia.
Ou Tep Phallin has been the President of the Cambodian Food and Service Workers Federation (CFSWF) since 2018. She is a vocal and passionate leader of women workers, particularly those in the beer promotion and entertainment industries. The CFSWF has worked with APHEDA since 2007, campaigning for the rights of public service, food and beverage, and entertainment workers. They are currently supporting striking workers and unionists jailed for protesting mass layoffs by NagaCorp, who run Cambodia’s NagaWorld casino and entertainment complex.
Lisa Zanatta is a qualified Carpenter and Joiner and for the past 35 years an activist in the then BWIU, now CFMEU. She is currently a union organiser and women’s officer with the CFMEU - Construction and General Division in Melbourne, as well as an advocate and member of the Victorian Government Building Equality Committee. In 2019, Lisa was elected to BWI Asia Pacific Regional Women’s Committee and participates in many Women Union activist groups and networks, including the Victorian Trades Hall Council’s Women’s Committee.
