Hong Kong (RAE - China) - Nestle workers dispute over sacking of union head (2010)

In February, a strike triggered by the suspension of two workers of a Nestlé plant, including union head Chan Bong-yin, for having shared an annual bonus (a HKD 5,000 supermarket voucher) among themselves. Whereas Nestle management stated that this ‘interfered with staff competitiveness’, the union believed that management was attempting to undermine the union. Union workers demanded that Nestle reinstate the workers and give the union better recognition. An agreement was later negotiated.
