Report Says Chinese Electronics Workers End Strike

Workers at a Tianjin-based Japanese electronics factory have ended their strike, which began June 29. From the Associated Press:

Mitsumi Electric Co. said the plant in Tianjin resumed production Saturday, the official Xinhua News Agency reported.

A Mitsumi Electric statement gave no details of any agreement between the plant and its estimated 2,800 workers, Xinhua said.

The company could not be reached for comment Saturday, and there was no update posted on the website for its Tianjin plant.

The strike was the latest in China involving foreign-owned companies as workers grow more demanding about better conditions. A Mitsumi spokesman earlier said the workers probably were inspired by similar strikes in recent weeks at Toyota Motor Corp. and Honda Motor Co. plants in China.
