Vietnamese workers end protest at Compal's Taoyuan plant

Focus Taiwan, Taiwan, 2 June 2020 - A sit-in staged by hundreds of migrant workers from Vietnam at a Compal Electronics Inc. factory in Taoyuan came to an end Tuesday after the two sides reached an agreement on the disputed issues, city authorities said.

In a statement, Taoyuan's Department of Labor said that after the negotiations, the migrant workers agreed to return to work, and the company has promised to deal with workers' complaints over living conditions and wages deduction and not retaliate against those who took part in the protest.

They said Compal management had not breached the law in its handling of the relevant issues, as the Vietnamese workers had claimed.

During the negotiations, which were mediated by labor department officials, the two sides reached an agreement and promised to end the labor-management dispute, according to the statement.
