Plan to negotiate ends Siem Reap airport strike

Workers at Siem Reap International Airport have ended an 11-day strike after agreeing with the company on a plan to negotiate over their grievances, a union rep said yesterday.

Staff returned to work on Friday after the Cambodia Tourism Industry Worker Trade Union (CTIWTU) and Cambodia Airport Management Services, part of the firm that runs the airport, agreed to three-way talks involving the government.

On November 24, 148 of the management service’s 500 employees went on strike, disputing the alleged hiring of nonunion labour and accusing the company of forcing workers to perform tasks outside their job descriptions.

CTIWTU’s union president Rorn Ravann said the union would file a complaint to the government and National Assembly and strike again if talks yielded no progress on those and other demands.
