NagaWorld to partially reopen as workers await financial support

NagaWorld is set to partially reopen this week after Prime Minister Hun Sen announced that casinos nationwide may restart operations, but only some of its staff will return to work with thousands still demanding emergency funding support.

Casino management and worker representatives met on July 6 to discuss the reopening set for July 8, and to address requests for monetary support made by casino employees last month.

Chhim Sithar, 32, president of NagaWorld’s Khmer Employees’ Labor Rights Support Union said that in the meeting, NagaWorld had updated the union about the agreement made between the company and the Health Ministry regarding opening procedures aimed at preventing the spread of Covid-19. However, she said no agreement was reached during the meeting regarding financial support.
