Ministry looking to lower workers’ night shift wages

The Ministry of Labour is looking to reduce night shift workers’ wages to bring them in line with day rates. This, it said, will increase Cambodia’s competitiveness. However, unions and workers have slammed the move.

Minister of Labour and Vocational Training Ith Sam Heng sent a letter on Thursday to relevant parties saying the ministry was preparing to amend the Labour Law with regards to night shift wages.

It also intends to end the compensatory days off and expand the scope of the Arbitration Council to resolve individual disputes.
