Siem Reap labor department warns hotel union leaders over protests

The Siem Reap provincial labor department on August 6 warned the leaders of two trade unions they had violated the union law by organizing protests at Le Meridien Angkor Hotel, which has been embroiled in a labor dispute since three union activist employees were terminated in July. 

Touch Kosal, president of the Cambodia Tourism Workers’ Union Federation (CTWUF) said the labor department had sent identical letters to him and Le Meridien Angkor Trade Union President Ly Linda warning them for allegedly organizing illegal strikes and blocking a public road outside the hotel, both of which violate the union law.

“In case you do not change your actions or repeatedly commit the actions mentioned in this warning letter, your professional organization could be sued and dissolved or face other measures based on the law,” the letter reads.
