Huanxin / Yixin Electronics Factory Workers Protest in Shanghai

13:02 Dec 8 2008 Shanghai, China

[Note: The China Post and HRIC reports below both mention two strikes---at Huanxin and Yixin, according to HRIC; no names in the China Post report---but the CLB report suggests that both factories belong to Yixin, as does the corporate profile I have linked below, and as the incidents happened in the same city on roughly the same day, I am counting them as one strike. The profiles also suggest this is a private, domestic company].

From the China Post:

Hundreds of angry workers protested outside two Shanghai electronics factories on Wednesday, claiming the plants had halted production without giving them overdue pay.

Workers’ protests have become common in south China this year as the global economic slump forces the closure of thousands of small plants. But this week’s demonstrations are believed to be among the first major protests in Shanghai, China’s commercial capital.

From Human Rights in China:


From CLB:

9-10 December. Huangxin Electronic Components Factory, under Yixin Industry, Shanghai. After bankruptcy, workers demand payment of wages in arrears and a subsidy for working in a high-temperature environment. Sit-in outside plant, roadblock. Police issue warnings; outcome unclear.
