New Report Finds Samsung Failing at Labor Treatment in China

T5 1PBLK2 - Patently Informative

According to a Reuters report published yesterday, Samsung Electronics had claimed that it is taking measures to address unfair labor practices at its Chinese suppliers, including overwork and denial of basic labor rights, in response to a labor group claim in September that the South Korean company has violated rules on worker conditions in China. A Samsung statement claimed: "We are now designing, researching, and/or implementing corrective actions to address every violation that was identified. Corrective actions include new hiring policies and work hours and overtime practices, among other steps, to protect the health and welfare of employees." Yet a new report published by China Labor Watch on Monday titled "Investigations Find That Samsung Is far from Goal of Model Labor Treatment," sees it a little differently than Samsung's nice and tidy press release. Their latest report which covers data from October and November 2012 could be found below. The report provides a link to a PDF that details their full findings.
