Casino developer and operator NagaCorp says that all of the employees of its NagaWorld casino complex in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, that took part in a strike last week had returned to work on Sunday “without any wage increases.”
In a Tuesday filing, Hong Kong-listed NagaCorp noted that business operations of the group “remained normal” during what the company said was an “illegal strike” last Thursday.
In a Saturday report, Reuters news agency quoted one of the strikers – a union activist – as saying that the disgruntled workers had returned to work after NagaCorp agreed to raise the workers’ salaries “between 18 per cent and 30 per cent.”
The Reuters story also said that under a reported deal between the striking employees and NagaCorp, the strikers had obtained the reinstatement of the NagaWorld Union president, Chhim Sithar, who had been suspended in September. Tuesday’s filing by NagaCorp made no reference to Sithar and whether she had been reinstated.
