High-rise workers end protest after pay rise

AROUND 700 construction workers employed at the Vattanac Capital high-rise on Monivong Boulevard resumed their work on Saturday following a three-day protest for increased pay. Worker representative Sreng Nary, 29, said that most of the labourers returned to work on Saturday and yesterday after receiving raises from the construction company. He said workers will now receive US$4 per eight-hour day, up from $3.50, as well as an extra 400 riels per overtime hour worked. “We are happy with our new work schedule and payment,” he said. Sok Sovandeth, president of the Cambodian National Federation of Building and Wood Workers, said the workers had also thumbprinted documents promising not to hold more strikes.
