There seems to be a workers dispute at Ta Prohm, where a team from the Archaeological Survey of India is working on a restoration project with the Apsara Authority.
Phnom Penh Post, 06 February 2013
The entire work force of the Ta Prohm temple restoration project in Siem Reap – more than 100 people – gathered at the temple yesterday to demand the reinstatement of 30 of their number who were dismissed at the start of the month.
The 145 workers plan to ask the Siem Reap provincial authorities for permission for a formal demonstration if Deyendra Singh Sood, the manager of the project run by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) for Cambodia’s APSARA Authority, did not soon agree to reinstate the workers, said Eung Khoy, vice president of the Angkor Preservation Workers Union–Indian-Cambodian Cooperation Project.
“We won’t work and will just sit and wait for Sood to come see us,” Khoy said, adding that they would not return to work until Sood found a resolution for the workers, all of whom are members of his union.
