Footwear production halts as workers go on strike

Apr '08
Hue Phong Footwear Company in Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) is going through difficult times as the workers have denied coming back from strike.

The labourers had put up their demands earlier in front of the management but due to company's negligence, the workforce had to take this drastic step.

Although, company officials tried to negotiate with the union recently, no positive result came out of it. More than 1,000 employees are on strike and this is affecting the production process of the unit on a large scale.

According to industry insiders, the reason for workers protest include physical exploitation, long working hours, low wages and illegal rules and regulations at the work area. The workforce had clearly stated that unless their requirements are fulfilled they would not get back to work.

There have been around 10 strikes so far in this footwear plant, which clearly shows that management has not been successful in satisfying the basic needs of the workers.

Hue Phong management board is unable to meet the demands even after having complete support from the local Government.
