Cambodia: Solidarity with workers at the West Mebun temple

In partnership with the Building and Wood Workers Trade Union Federation of Cambodia.

126 skilled workers restoring the West Mebun temple in Cambodia have been out of work for a year. They were previously employed by the French archaeological agency EFEO, with a collective agreement and good working conditions. But in February 2018 they learned they would be suspended and then transferred to the Cambodian Government agency APSARA, which has a history of union-busting. They were told there is not enough money to employ all of them according to their previous agreement. Now unskilled workers have been hired to do their work and already there are reports of improper payments. The West Mebun workers are proud of their role in restoring Cambodia's cultural heritage, but deserve dignity and respect in their work.
