They may not have western-style unions in China, but workers sure do strike. Workers at Honda’s transmission plant in Foshan, Guangdong Province, walked off the job on Monday after their pay increases weren’t as large as they had hoped.
According to The Nikkei [sub], Honda agreed to bigger raises, and workers were back on the job on Tuesday.
The Foshan transmission plan employs more than 2,000 employees. It was one of mostly Japanese- and Taiwanese-owned factories that were hit by a wave of strikes in 2010.
