126 restoration workers at the West
However, in February 2018 they were alerted that due to financial difficulties work on the temple restoration would be suspended. The work is being funded by a Ministry of the French Government. However, control of the project has been transferred to the Cambodian agency APSARA, which has not allowed unions and collective bargaining in the past.
The shut-down which began in May was slated to last only three months, but APSARA is refusing to let them return to work on the terms and conditions in the collective agreement that they fought for and won. The wages being proposed by APSARA represent a 30-65% wage cut across the wage scale, as well as the loss of other benefits.
