NANJING, Jan. 15 (Xinhua) — Employees of a Taiwan enterprise smashed vehicles and blocked a road Friday to protest against poor company management in east Jiangsu Province. No casualties were reported.
Rumors saying that the company planned to cancel the year-end bonus evoked more than 2,000 workers to gather in the United Win (China) Technology Ltd. Co. Friday morning in the Suzhou Industrial Park (SIP).
Some began to smash facilities and vehicles of the company at about 8:45 a.m. despite explanations of the management and local government officials. The workers also blocked a road and threw stones to the police.
The disputes aroused because employees had long been dissatisfied with the management, payment and food provided by the company, according to the SIP administrative committee.
The committee has asked the company’s executives to clarify the rumors and solve management problems as soon as possible.
Officials from the SIP bureaus of economic development, social security and work safety were communicating with representatives of the employees
