Workers at Phnom Penh’s NagaWord casino are set to strike on Jan 9, a union said in a letter to the company.
The union made six demands, including a higher minimum wage for employees starting at $300 per month for hotel staff and $500 for those on the gambling floor. It is also seeking the reinstatement of union president Chhim Sithar, who was suspended in September for defending a worker carrying a T-shirt that was printed as part of the union’s campaign for living wages.
A Labor Ministry mediation between the company and the Khmer Employees’ Labour Rights Support Union of NagaWorld in October failed to make headway.
