Striking beer workers see their demands met

About 50 employees of Khmer Brewery, makers of Cambodia Beer, will return to work today after the company’s management agreed to demands made during a brief strike.

The workers first announced their stipulations during a protest on Tuesday, when the Dangkor district factory was closed for International Human Rights Day, said Buoth Mara, vice president of the Cambodian Right Workers Union Federation.

Employees returned to work on Wednesday, but went on strike yesterday, demanding overtime pay and a raise for long-time employees.“The points that the workers demanded were accepted,” said Mara.

“We will now receive [long-term] duration contracts, a meal for lunch, $6 per day for workers employed there for more than three months and overtime pay on Saturdays and Sundays.” Officials from the company could not be reached for comment.
