Ssangyong union votes to strike against Chinese

Workers at Ssangyong Motor have voted to strike against the company’s controlling (51.9%) shareholder Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation for its alleged transfer of technology from Ssangyong’s Korean base to China, where SAIC Motor is planning to build extra Ssangyong production capacity.

A union leader said about 80% per cent of Ssangyong’s unionised workers voted in favour of industrial action. The union had last week accused SAIC of withholding investment from Ssangyong’s Korean operations.
