800 workers strike at Taiwanese plant

More than 800 workers have gone on strike at a Taiwanese garment factory in southern Vietnam, Chin Phong Vietnam, to protest delays in the payment of their salaries and the new year Tet bonus. The company paid their salaries on Tuesday and said it would pay half of the Tet bonus on Jan 20, with the rest due by April 20. But the strike continued, because many workers wanted the first half of their Tet bonus immediately. Thousands of workers went on strike in Vietnam last year, mostly at large foreign-owned companies.
