Camboya - Kampot Cement and KC Gecin persist with union busting operations (2012)

On 28 October, the provincial court of Kampot ordered the reinstatement of Chhun Peou and Tep Mao, two Kampot Cement employees fired shortly after being elected president and treasurer of a branch of the Building and Wood Workers Trade Union of Cambodia, BWTUC (see 2011 edition of the Annual Survey). Kampot Cement refused to accept the verdict and went to appeal. It dismissed a number of other BWTUC supporters during 2011 and is refusing all dialogue with the union.

Another company from the construction sector, KC Gecin Enterprises, managed to complete its destruction of the BWTUC branch union set up in 2010 (see 2011 edition of the Annual Survey), dismissing all the members still employed by the construction firm.
