Chevron offer ends Caltex station strike

Employees of Caltex petrol stations in Phnom Penh are returning to work today after management offered to raise salaries by $20 a month and not withhold pay for time missed during the strike, which started earlier this month.

The agreement, effective June 1, was reached yesterday in a meeting with representatives of employees, Caltex parent company Chevron and the Ministry of Labour.

“Chevron (Cambodia) Limited has made an offer to our employees, which was accepted, bringing an end to the industrial dispute involving our service station staff,” spokeswoman Than Chanlek said in an emailed statement. An employee and a union leader confirmed the deal.

Workers at 17 Phnom Penh branches walked off the job on May 12, demanding monthly salaries of at least $160, an annual bonus and an annual staff party. The deal does not mean all workers will make $160. Chevron did not agree to an annual staff party or the annual bonus.
