More than 300 workers from the Tropicana Casino and Resort in Banteay Meanchey province’s Poipet town obeyed a court order to end striking and return to work yesterday, an official said.
Hong Prakorb, a provincial official for the Labour Ministry, said more than 200 workers had ended their latest strike, despite their demand for two sacked union leaders to be reinstated not being met.
“The workers returned to work this morning because of this court injunction,” he said.
Sat Sep was one of two Free Trade Union representatives sacked at the factory earlier this year.
The Arbitration Council issued a ruling for the casino to reinstate Sep and his colleague, but they remain excluded.
Sep said yesterday he would file a complaint against the court order and inform the ministry that the workers would strike again until their demands, which also included better working conditions, were met.
Prakorb said that both sides were in discussions about resolving the dispute.
“This case is not done yet,” he said.
