Successful strike at Honda factory in China

Three years ago, workers at the Nanhai Honda automotive plant in China made international news with their successful strike at a major automotive factory. This week workers once again came out to defend and fight for their wages. The workers were unhappy with a pay deal announced by management and the union that would only have given them a 10.2 percent increase. The workers took wildcat strike action for a day in protest. Management increased their offer to 14.4%, in addition to an increase in the housing subsidy. It is to be seen if this new found power will be reflected by workers at other automotive factories in China.
