A six-day strike by nearly 2,000 workers at Taiwanese garment manufacturer Triple VN Company Limited has come to an end after the company’s leaders agreed to the workers’ demands.

The strike started last Tuesday (12 October) when workers downed tools in protest at unreasonable production demands and poor quality meals. They also claimed ill-treatment by the factory’s foreign managers.

Following intervention by the local government, the company agreed to improve conditions, as well as pay the workers’ salaries during the protests.

This is the third time this year that a strike has taken place at this 100% Taiwanese-owned garment company.

Located in Ho Chi Minh City, Triple VN is a subsidiary of Taipei-based garment maker Makalot Industrial Co Ltd, which supplies apparel for brands like Wal-Mart, Gap and Target. Besides Vietnam, Makalot has production bases in China, Indonesia, the Philippines, Cambodia and Sri Lanka.
