Chinese workers employed at Samsung win pay rise

As reported in a number of previous posts (see here and here) workers in China are starting to increase their demands for better pay and conditions. The latest case involves the giant electronic company Samsung, which in its home country of South Korea, is notoriously anti union and has a dismal OHS record. In the southern city of Dongguan, over 1,000 workers were able to win increases to overtime rates and subsidies after a short strike. In a move that is meant to forestall more industrial disputes, three major Chinese cities announced increases to minimum wages.
