China: Honda Workers Win Pay Rise

Workers at a Honda auto parts factory in China have returned to work with a 24 per cent wage increase, after taking strike action that shut down Honda assembly plants to protest against low wages. Around 1,900 workers at the plant in Foshan began industrial action on May 17 demanding an increase in wages. More details of the workers demands can be seen on the Globalization Monitor website here and a brief report on the successful outcome of the strike from the International Metalworkers Federation can be read here.
