The workers are among 3,000 who stopped working on September 4 morning to oppose the factory for not paying them bonuses on Reunification Day (April 30), May Day (May 1) and National Day (September 2). Plus, they only received unsuitable subsidies for their extra working time.

According to the workers, when they stopped work, Head of the factory’s Human Resource Department, Phan Chi Do, beat some of them. Meanwhile, the deputy head of the department took the electric rod of a body guard and pressed it against a pregnant female worker who then fell to the ground.

Therefore, a worker smashed the bodyguard’s room and hundreds of others surrounded the human resources area to oppose the managers’ behaviour.
