Union rep wrongfully fired from airport

The Cambodian Tourism and Service Worker’s Federation (CTSWF) is asking Minister of Labour Vong Sauth to intervene in the case of one union worker fired from a Phnom Penh International Airport company with no reason offered.

Nin Kosal, who worked as union secretary for the Cambodia Airport Management Service (CAMS), was fired in May, deputy secretary of the CTSWF Sok Narith said.

On Wednesday the CTSWF sent a letter asking the Minister of Labour to intervene to allow Kosal to return to work.

“Kosal was fired by the company without serious cause,” Marith said. “This is a case of rancour, because he has often promoted workers’ benefits within the company, and the company discriminates against the union’s activity. We demand justice for Kosal.”

Kosal had worked for CAMS for over 10 years, Marith added.

Nin Kosal denies CAMS’ accusation that he was drinking on the job, saying the company was  simply “angry with me because I always help workers who have problems here”.

Nhek Norinda, spokesman for the Phnom Penh International Airport, could not be reached for comment.
