Wintek employees on strike over safety and bonuses

Posted on Wednesday, January 20 2010 @ 17:21:54 CET by

Engadget reports around 2,000 of Wintek's 10,000 workers went on a five-hour strike and destroyed equipment at their factory last Friday over a rumored bonus cancellation for the second year in a row. The workers also criticized Wintek for using n-hexane, a toxic chemical which they claim caused the death and paralyzation of several employees last year.

The workers resumed work after the company promised that workers will get their bonuses, and said that the factory hasn't used n-hexane since August, complete with proof that current n-hexane levels are lower than the required safety regulations.
On top of that, workers also criticized Wintek for using n-hexane -- a banned substance used for cleaning LCDs -- which they claim caused the death and paralyzation of several workers last year. Factory officials and Chinese health authorities don't deny that n-hexane was used, but they say it wasn't responsible for either the deaths or the paralyzations.
The strike may affect Nokia and Apple phone production, as both companies use displays from Wintek.
