A drawn-out labor dispute has besieged luxury hotels in Cambodia, reducing service at many hotels and producing actions ranging from negotiation and settlement to the Raffles chain dismissing some 300 striking workers. Raffles’ restored Le Royal Hotel in Phnom Penh is operating with a skeleton staff and its colonial-era Grand d’Angkor in Siem Reap, near the ancient ruins of Angkor Wat, has closed until the dispute is resolved. The strike is affecting all luxury hotels in the country, and striking workers, for their part, are determined not to let their demonstrations be overtaken by outsiders who might make trouble, preferring to maintain peaceful protests to make their point.
