Rong Chhun wins union re-election

The outspoken head of the Cambodian Independent Teachers Association has been re-elected to serve another four-year term as president of the union. Rong Chhun, who ran for the office unopposed, said he will focus on boosting teachers’ salaries during his new term. “The first thing that I have to do ... is urge the government to increase all teachers’ salaries to 1 million riels (US$240) per month,” Rong Chhun said following the voting results Thursday. Teachers currently make as little as $2 per day.
