CHINA-SHOE FACTORY STRIKE
Adidas resumes production as strike at massive Chinese shoe factory ends partially

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Saturday, April 26, 2014 6:23 AM EDT
BEIJING


Adidas has resumed production at a Chinese factory complex hit by a massive strike, with most workers returning to the job.

The Germany-based athletic wear giant said workers returned Friday at its factory run by Taiwanese-owned Yue Yuen Industrial Holdings Ltd., the world's largest manufacturer of athletic shoes.

More than 40,000 workers at Yue Yuen's sprawling factory complex in the southern Chinese city of Dongguan went on strike in early April to protest underpayments into their social security and housing funds.

Labor activists confirmed Saturday that most workers, including those assigned to the Adidas factory, had returned to work, though about 10,000 remained on strike.

The workers have not reached a deal with Yue Yuen, and it was unclear why many of them had returned to the job.
