Siem Reap Cultural Village workers resume strike over wages

Employees of the Cambodian Cultural Village tourism park in Siem Reap resumed strike action on August 23, demanding the company pay monthly wages and benefits that have been cut since April due to decreased tourism to the province.

Lim Sopha, head of the Cambodia Culture Company Tourism Employee Unions (CCCTEU), said more than 60 workers at the Cultural Village had been on strike since August 14 over unpaid wages and meal allowances, and had temporarily suspended strikes of Khmer New Year at the request of provincial authorities.

According to employee representatives, workers’ monthly wages have been reduced by up to 20% since April and their $25 monthly food allowance was cut entirely as Siem Reap has faced a severe drop in tourism due to Covid-19.
