On January 30, workers of Keyhinge Toys factory located in Danang City, Vietnam, called for strike demanding hike in wages and improved working mechanism.

Fibre2fashion tried to find out reasons of the strike and one of the company officials responded and told, “The company workers walked away as they demanded higher bonuses and longer holidays for the upcoming Tet festival, the biggest and most important celebration in a year.”

In 2007, Keyhinge has increased the annual bonus 10 percent higher than last year. The company believes in proper remuneration for its employees, in line with industry standards such as providing attendance bonus, production bonus, free meal, and housing allowance to the workers.

The company source further informed that Keyhinge's policy for its employees in China and Vietnam has always been in strict compliance with its Code of Conduct. If the staff has to work beyond the standard 8-hour shift, each employee receives an overtime pay.

Keyhinge pays utmost attention to its production code of conduct. With some of its major customers being renowned multinational companies, higher stringent requirements on human rights conditions safety standards, terms of employment and working environment had been enforced in its production plants in China and Vietnam.

Accordingly, it has obtained numerous awards in China and Vietnam as recognition such as The Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSAS 18000).

Keyhinge is currently looking into the claims and grievances voiced by the employees and hope that it could reach a settlement with the employees in short time.

The Keyhinge Toys factory in Vietnam is owned by the Hong Kong based Keyhinge Industrial Company, which also has several factories in China making toys for McDonald's-Disney.
