Government warns union leader for allegedly inciting Cintri strike

The Labor Ministry has warned a union federation president for allegedly violating the Labor Law, accusing him of inciting workers from trash collection firm Cintri to go on strike to pressure their employer into guaranteeing their benefits and final pay should they lose their jobs.

In a letter sent October 8 to Touch Kosal, president of the Cambodia Tourism Workers’ Union Federation (CTWUF), the ministry alleged he had led the strike by about 2,000 Cintri workers, which began October 2, and ordered him to stop his activities.

“He has acted contrary to federal statutes, led others to strike illegally, and incited workers/employees to commit serious mistakes,” the letter reads.
