The saga surrounding a workers’ strike at the NagaWorld casino resort in Cambodia last month is far from over. Support for workers jailed after the strike is coming from union employees at Coca-Cola, Chevron and more.
A workers’ strike at Cambodia’s NagaWorld that began in December has been, for the most part, mundane. The events after the strike have been the complete opposite. Some of the union leaders who played a role in the strike were sent to jail. Even the United Nations (UN) decried the police action that followed.
A month after the strike, the fallout is still resonating in Cambodia. It’s also reaching other countries, such as Malaysia. Union workers at Cambodia Beverage Company, which produces Coca-Cola products, and at plants belonging to multinational fuel supplier Chevron have begun to voice their opposition to the treatment.
