Frequent strikes aggravating misery of footwear industry

Operations of De Vuong Footwear Company, located in Long An Province, got stuck on April 13, when more than 2,000 workers went on strike, to protest low salary mechanism and difficult working condition.

According to the workers, they proposed a rise in allowance for accommodation and lunch, but there is no reply from the management board.

However when the matter went out of the hand, company management in accordance with local government promised to solve all related issues on the workers' proposal by April 19.

Presently, consumer price index in Vietnam rose by 19 percent compared to previous year. This has become a matter of concern for the industry expert. As inflation is picking up in the region, strikes have become a regular affair in the country with workers demanding higher pay and better working conditions.

This is quite evident from the fact that the footwear industry is confronted with another strike at Hue Phong Footwear plant in Ho Chi Minh City on April 12, leading to large losses due to three day off.

Early this April, more than 20,000 labourers of Chungluh Footwear, one of the largest suppliers for Nike, walked off, demanding higher pay to keep pace with skyrocketing prices.
