Strike ends at Japanese electronics firm in China

Workers at a Japanese-owned electronics factory in north China returned to work on Saturday after a four-day strike, China's official news agency said.

Production at the Tianjin Mitsumi Electric Co. factory resumed after an agreement between the workers and the employer, China's Xinhua news agency cited the company as saying.

The factory is owned by Tokyo-listed Mitsumi Electric, a maker of electronics components.

Mitsumi Electric had previously said the plant, in the Dongli District of Tianjin with over 3,300 employees, had stopped production because "some of its employees demanded higher wages and improved benefits".

The Xinhua report said the workers' lawful demands were satisfied, but did not provide details.

Over past weeks, striking workers have demanded higher wages from car parts makers and other manufacturers, especially Japanese auto parts companies with operations in the south.

Workers, many of them migrants from poor villages, say their wages have not kept up with rising prices or the profits reaped by companies using China as a low-cost production base.
