Another Samsung electronics worker hospitalised

Another worker has suffered acute methanol poisoning at a Samsung factory in the last month. The young worker had to be hospitalised and later fell into a coma. This case is only the latest of a spate of serious injuries that workers have suffered at Samsung where reports indicate they are not provided with health and safety equipment. Samsung electronics is a brutal employer with a long history of union repression. Many of its workers are in precarious employment with widespread sub-contracting, temporary and casualised jobs.
