BAC NINH (VNS) — The northern province of Bac Ninh yesterday ordered competent agencies to investigate why a South Korean company had closed down, laying off 450 workers.
On June 1, GMIE Co., Ltd, a wholly South Korean company that has manufactured mobile phone covers for Samsung in the Que Vo Industrial Park in the province since 2012, suddenly suspended work on all its production lines and informed its employees that they would be laid off indefinitely.
The sudden closure has caused the company's workers to worry about their jobs and rights. — VNS
