Gambling operator denies local media claims that striking workers have received a pay rise.
Cambodia.- NagaCrop has issued a statement saying that striking workers have returned to their roles without the 18 per cent to 30 per cent pay rise some local media outlets reported they had received yesterday.
“All the employees who participated in the illegal strike have returned to work on 12 January 2020 without any wage increases”, the company said in a statement today.
Last Saturday, Reuters reported that NagaWorld had reached a negotiated settlement with workers who were asking for higher wages and the reinstatement of their suspended union president, Chhim Sithar.
NagaWorld made no mention of the reinstatement of union leader Chhim Sithar, with local media saying he had been returned to his role as part of the settlement agreement with workers.
NagaCorp confirmed that in spite of the worker’s strike last week, business continued as usual during the weekend and that the company expects “no negative impact” on its operations and financial performance.
“The Company wishes to inform that all business operations of the Group remained normal during the illegal strike and the Board expects that the above matter has had no negative impact on the business operations and financial performance of the Group.”
