Women strike for bonuses and pay

NEARLY 3,000 women workers of a German-invested company in south China's Hainan Province have begun a strike to press their demands on bonus, pay and vacations.

The Chinese workers gathered yesterday in front of the plant of the Hainan Youmei Underwear Co Ltd in Haikou City, the provincial capital, to continue their protest which began on Wednesday.

"The strike started after the management said a worker could not get year-end bonus if her production efficiency failed to reach 50 percent of the average level last year," said Mo Xiaohui, an employee. "That was impossible for most of us because production dropped sharply in the financial crisis."

Germany-based Triumph International Overseas Ltd invested in the company in 1992.
