Kampong Cham teachers demand overtime

Teachers in Kampong Cham province have demanded they be paid overtime wages they say they never received. Rong Chhun, president of the Cambodia Independent Teachers Association, wrote to Minister of Education Im Sethy on Tuesday asking that the teachers be paid for four months of overtime in 2008-09. “The late overtime payments are affecting their feelings and livelihood,” the letter stated. Rong Chhun said he had received information that the money is now with the Kampong Cham provincial Department of Education, and that officials have ignored the outstanding payment. Department officials could not be reached for comment Tuesday.
