Samsung Display distinguished itself: employees of the company declared the first strike in history



Workers at the display manufacturer Samsung Display have gone on strike, the first in the history of the company, which was founded nine years ago. The basis for the strike was a disagreement over the requested wage increase.

The union is demanding a 6.8% increase in basic wages, but this demand was rejected by management, which instead proposed a 4.5% increase. After being denied their demands, 40 workers at Samsung Display’s Asan plant in South Chuncheon province went on strike.

Just a year ago, this would not have been possible, as Samsung previously opposed the creation of unions and did not allow them to exist. However, in May 2020, Samsung officially announced that there would be no more union bans policy. This change in company policy led to the creation of a union. It employs approximately 2,400 employees, which is 10% of Samsung Display’s workforce.

Earlier, the head of Samsugn Group, Lee Jae-yong, promised that the company will strictly comply with labor laws and guarantee the basic rights of workers.

Some believe the strike will be the first and set off a chain reaction of similar protests in other divisions of Samsung.
