Follow-up on Robust water factory strike in Guangzhou

It was the sixth day of the strike at Robust Water Factory in Guangzhou. Groupe Danone of France still refused to respond to the workers’ demand – a seniority-based compensation. According to the workers, Danone “don’t have sincerity” and adopted different means to threaten the workers to return to their position. They deleted workers’ Weixin messages  (a messaging app prevalently used in China) to silence workers’ opposition. They also invited the Labour Department to the factory for “legal education”, telling the workers that Robust did not violate any laws, attempting to create differentiation among workers. A worker was injured during a conflict with Danone and was subsequently punished owing to her “disruption of order”. Workers spontaneously raise fund for the injured worker.
Editor’s note: Starting from the 8th of November, workers working in the Robust Water Factory of Danone in Guangzhou began to strike, so as to shownsolidarity.orde0claon="htshow>rio respontn: n.e byferent means to asuchto sted wiorkers.
