Cleaners at airport to get salary bump

A monday walk-out by cleaners at Phnom Penh International Airport has resulted in the company the airport enlists for sanitary services agreeing to hike employees’ monthly salaries by $20 yesterday.

More than 30 employees at HCC Co, the airport’s cleaning service, walked off the job, demanding their base pay be raised from $90 to $128 per month and that senior workers receive $28 raises, Hang Sophea, an HCC employee, said yesterday.

After Monday’s walkout, HCC officials agreed to meet with workers about their demands yesterday.

“During yesterday’s talks, the company agreed to increase salary by $20 per month for everyone,” Sophea said. “We had a meeting [among workers] about the decision, and we agreed to accept, and now will return to work.”

Chan Sokheang, HCC’s chief executive, could not be reached yesterday. An administrator who spoke on the condition of anonymity confirmed the raise and other benefits for night shift workers.

Airport spokesman Khek Norinda yesterday said the dispute was within the company and did not involve the airport itself.
