DONG NAI (VNS) — Employees of Leafhebank, a leather company based in the southern Dong Nai Province, who had gone on strike on Tuesday, have returned to work after their demands were met.
The employees were protesting against the company's policies.
Before the strike ended, Leafhebank agreed to reduce the number of work shifts for workers during the trial period and to pay workers on the 15th day of every month, as opposed to the company's previous policy of paying between the 15th and the 25th day of every month.
The company also agreed to negotiate with workers, who are pregnant or mothers of small children, with regards to their over-time hours and promised they wouldn't be scheduled for any work without their consent.
The Deputy Head of the district's trade union, Tran Thi Bich Lien, said late payment of salaries last month and increased working hours had forced workers to launch a collective strike. — VNS
