Waste collectors on strike as City Hall reviews Cintri’s contract

About 1,000 employees of trash collection company Cintri have been on strike for four days to demand benefits as City Hall reviews the company’s exclusive garbage collection contract for the capital, with the protest causing waste to pile up in the streets.

The strike comes after Cintri workers saw a notice from City Hall circulating online saying a new firm would be awarded the contract to clear garbage in the capital, leaving workers concerned that Cintri would shut down without paying their benefits and final salary.

In response, Phnom Penh City Hall announced October 5 that it would recruit new workers to collect the trash while the negotiations are underway between Cintri management and employees, a move some workers said was unreasonable.
