Ex-Great Duke Workers Continue Monthslong Protest for Settlement Pay

Former employees of the shuttered Great Duke Hotel again protested in front of the building on Thursday, calling for awarded compensation from the Phnom Penh hotel’s owner or legal action from the Labor Ministry.

Touch Kosal, president of the Cambodia Tourism Workers Union Federation, said the hotel owner has failed to pay workers the severance pay that they are owed under the Labor Law, even after a settlement decision was issued by the Arbitration Council in favor of the workers in late February.

Kosal told VOD on Thursday that the ex-staff did not want to continue demonstrating but felt they had to protest in order to get the compensation awarded to them.
