Taiwán - Wave of anti-trade union dismissals at Young Fast Optoelectronics (2011)

On 12 March, a company which manufacturers touch screens, Young Fast Optoelectronics (YFO), who supply equipment to Samsung, LG, HTC and Google, fired five leaders and ten members of the trade union which had been set up within the company in 2009. The dismissals took place after the trade union had criticised serious violations of the law and indecent working conditions. The management justified these dismissals using the pretext that their manufacturing line had been transferred to China, but the Taiwanese trade unionists are convinced that this was a deliberate act to disband the trade union and a serious breach of labour law. The YFO factory is located in Tao-Yuan.
