Strike ends as UK’s company to increase workers’ wages

The labor disputes in UK's company Theodore Alexander were resolved successfully in a meeting between company’s leaders and workers with attendance of the Labor Union’s representatives. 

The company accepted to raise salary for all of its employees from February, 2011 with the average additional payment of VND 100.000-250,000 for each person.

The Labor Union of HCM City Export Processing and Industrial Zone Authority required the directorial board to officially announce the decision to all employees.

Before the strike, the company had proposed productivity and seniority bonuses to workers by at least 125.000 VND to 400.000 VND per person a month. However, most of the employees had still disagreed with this promise.

The UK furniture manufacturer’s workers started the strike on Feb. 14 to request a salary increase and accommodation, hazardous, commuting, catering allowances for workers. 

At the same time, more than 600 workers of Taiwanese fan motor manufacturer Vi Thai Ltd. Co. in Tan Thuan Export Processing Zone went on strike for the third day because the salary negotiation between company’s leaders and workers failed.
