Striking Workers at Honda China Supplier Demand Apology

The strikes at Honda suppliers are ongoing in China. Reuters has the latest on a strike in Foshan:

Stoppages at foreign-run factories across China by workers demanding pay increases disrupted operations for several weeks in May and June, but the wave of unrest tapered off by the end of last month.

The latest strike began on Monday when the plant operated by Atsumitec Co tried to fire 90 workers demanding better pay and conditions.

They also asked Japanese management to apologise to Chinese workers for its conduct during the standoff, and to promise not to lay off any employees for the next two years.

The workers are also seeking an increase of about 500 yuan ($74) per month. Wages currently stand at about 980 yuan.
