After the workers came back to work from their week long Tet holidays, the company's management board announced a new salary policy indicating a lower payment for the workers. As a result of which the workers decided to strike against the arbitrary policy.

Terratex VN 2 is one of the two, Korean managed garment plants which out sources garment manufacturing at its plant in Hoc Mon district, Ho Chi Minh City.
