DEADLY DUST-China Labour Bulletin Research Series

From China Labour Bulletin:

China Labour Bulletin is pleased to release today the first in a forthcoming series of English-language research reports on major issues concerning workers’ rights in China. The main focus of the new report – Deadly Dust – is on the case intervention work undertaken by CLB during 2004-05 to assist jewellery-processing workers who contracted chronic silicosis, an incurable disease, to win fair and appropriate compensation from their employers – mostly Hong Kong-headquartered companies. In the 100 or so cases monitored by CLB, the workers’ health tragedies were directly traceable to their employers’ disregard of China’s occupational health and safety laws and to weak or non-existent enforcement by government agencies.

The report is available at China Labour Bulletin in PDF format.
