Camboya - ILO renews call to end trade union rights violations at Angkor Wat (2012)

In March, the ILO Committee on Freedom of Association (CFA) dealt with a complaint by Building and Wood Workers’ International regarding the trade union rights violations at the Angkor Wat site (see 2008 and 2010 editions of the Annual Survey). The CFA called on the government to take measures to ensure that APSARA (a body set up by the government to protect the environment around Angkor Wat) and the Angkor golf complex engage in bona fide negotiations with their respective unions. It also urged the government to ensure that members of the union at JASA (the Japan-APSARA team for safeguarding Angkor), be allowed to freely elect their representatives without fear of dismissal or reprisals. The authorities have ignored similar CFA recommendations in the past.
