Striking Cambodian casino workers return to work in NagaWorld deal

NagaWorld, which Cambodia's Hong Kong-listed NagaCorp opened in Phnom Penh on Aug. 17, 2016, houses 200 luxury brand shops, such as Gucci and Coach, on its floor area of 13,000 sq. meters.

PHNOM PENH (Reuters) -- Thousands of striking Cambodian workers of a Hong Kong-listed casino company returned to their jobs on Saturday after winning wage increases and the reinstatement of a suspended union leader in a rare labor victory.

About 3,000 workers had joined the strike in front of the NagaWorld hotel and casino complex, owned by NagaCorp Ltd, in Phnom Penh to demand higher wages. Workers get paid between $150 to $250 a month.
