Camboya - Trade union rights ignored at Angkor Wat (2010)

Cambodia’s major tourist attraction, Angkor Wat, is still an obstacle course for trade unionists wishing to defend workers’ rights. The Building and Wood Workers Trade Union of Cambodia (BWTUC) has denounced anti union intimidation faced by employees of APSARA, a body created by the government to protect the environment around Angkor Wat. The APSARA has a bad track record, following anti-union dismissals in 2006. In November, further to a complaint by the Building and Wood Workers International (BWI), the ILO’s Committee on Freedom of Association asked the government to take the necessary measures to ensure that APSARA and the Angkor golf complex enter into negotiations with their respective unions in good faith.
