Bus drivers seek more pay, less liability

More then 60 workers employed by Phnom Penh Sorya Transportation Company in the capital’s Russey Keo district went on strike yesterday with a litany of demands, including a $60 monthly wage increase, workers and company representatives said.

Workers also called for an end to a company policy requiring employees to shoulder a deposit ranging from $100-$500, in case of an accident, and a fine of about $750 if caught transporting people or goods without a ticket.

During the three-hour negotiation yesterday, Chan Sophanna, the company manager, agreed to cancel the $750 fine, leading about 20 employees to return to work.

However, Doch Saron, 43, an employee at Sorya, said he and about 60 others will continue striking until they receive a raise, overtime, and a $6 tip during each shift.

Sophanna said workers already receive overtime, and tips amounting to up to $100 depending on their schedule.
