PHNOM PENH - The Banteay Meanchey provincial court has ordered casino workers in a border town to resume work, following a five-day strike over poor working conditions.

The 300 workers are also demanding that two union leaders be given their jobs back after they were fired earlier this year by Casino Tropicana.

The provincial court judge, Pich Vicheathor, told workers they must resume their work or be fired, workers said.

The workers say they will continue their strike, while rights activists say the court showed bias toward the casino in its decision.

Khun Tharo, a program official at the American Center for International Labor Solidarity, said the court order was not acceptable. “We will strike tomorrow until demands are met for a solution between employers and employees,” he said.

Workers now stand to lose all their benefits, which means their demands have met with “nothing,” Sum Chan Kea, a local coordinator for the rights group Adhoc, said.

Court and casino officials could not be reached for comment.

Cambodia is thought to produce the best wild honey in Southeast Asia, mainly due to its climate and topography. Most of it is harvested informally and sold cheaply at local village markets. Now, one company is helping some of the country's poorest people by employing them to hunt for honey, then selling it commercially. (AP, Koh Kong)
