The brewer embroiled in a contentious dispute last month with its beer promoters has installed a rival union inside the company and refuses to negotiate with any other unions, the union that represented the beer promoters in their five-week strike said.
The “so-called” union was run by a “manager of the company”, the Cambodian Food and Service Workers’ Federation said.
On August 29, Cambrew, which is half-owned by Carlsberg, relented to pressure and agreed to a July Arbitrat-ion Council ruling that it pay its striking beer promoters three years’ worth of overtime wages. CFSW said Cambrew was deducting “four weeks from each year”. It also said the beer promoters who went on strike had been “punished in different way”, ranging from poor working assignments to lengthier transportation.
