大陸廠員工幹部致勝華董事長、股東們的一封信

黃董事長、各位股東 好:

勝華兩個大陸廠出現嚴重的管理問題!

因為領導幹部管理不善,爆發勞資爭議,企業形象受損。另外還遭到中國政府機關罰款與嚴密監控,實在需要勝華黃董事長與股東好好關心,徹底改革大陸廠的管理問題。

這些是我們員工及幹部的重要觀察,敬請黃董事長及股東費心思量,拯救員工、幹部與大陸廠的生存。

東莞萬士達因領導管理不善,遭受中國海關重大罰款4000萬人民幣,後續罰款費用改為補稅,同年及2008年,萬士達遭受海關當局嚴格監控企業無法申請A級企業。

東莞萬士達內部管理不當,截止至2009年4月24日止,該公司於海關進出口報關業務兩次違規,移送公安廳緝私局,至金未結案,企業遭受海關當局嚴格監控企業無法申請A級企業。

2008年東莞萬士達被取消高新技術技科技資格 。

東莞萬士達公司伙食惡劣,為節省開支,採購單位採購發霉大米。2009年4月3日星期五晚餐,員工甚至集體食物中毒。

東莞萬士達及蘇州聯建廠台幹遭受公司欺壓,不敢吭聲,在全公司大陸及員工都沒上班情況下,台幹於星期六被強制上班,嚴重違反大陸勞動法及台灣勞工法令。

另外,2009年3月底無預警調回東莞萬士達數名台幹,包含品保、關務、LCM製造、管理、營建等部。這些台幹皆是東莞萬士達中堅幹部,為公司盡心盡力,十幾年來留在大陸打拚。如今卻無預警調動,形同逼退員工。

我們懇請董事長、股東們,好好關心大陸廠的經營發展,金融海嘯雖然可怕,但勝華絕對撐得過去,而且聲勢看漲。員工也絕對盡心努力,我們期待勝華大展鴻圖、稱霸全球。

拜託、拜託。

來自大陸廠員工幹部 啟

管理不當、品質難保、訂單不保 向股東與法人代表公布勝華科技營運真相!

0610包圍勝華科技公司股東常會行動通知

管理不當、品質難保、訂單不保

向股東與法人代表公布勝華科技營運真相!

時間:2009年6月10日(星期二)上午08:30

地點:勝華科技公司營運總部(台中縣潭子鄉台中加工出口區建國路10號)

行動內容:【公布營運真相、最新勞動調查報告】

聯絡人:自主工聯執行長 朱維立0981-238732

你有投資勝華嗎?你購買勝華股票嗎?你貸款或借錢給勝華嗎?你有下單給勝華嗎?你是勝華的代工廠嗎?勝華科技公司將於2009年6月10日(星期二)上午09:00召開股東常會,勝華公司聲稱虧損,今年不發股利,並提案以「現金增資發行普通股參與海外存託憑證」、「私募股普通股」等方式於海內外借錢增資。經營管理不當,借再多的錢,都只是把錢丟進無底洞!勝華科技員工自救會、自主工聯等勞工團體將至勝華股東常會上公布勝華科技營運真相,勝華股東、法人代表、品牌商與代工廠商,這是你不能不知、不能錯過的重要真相!

真相一:裁員減薪剝削勞工、營業成本卻大幅增加!

勝華公司聲稱因虧損今年度不分配股利。查勝華公司97年度營運報告書,營業額較96年度增加68.7億元,但因營業成本過高(較96年度增加288.5億元),致使營業毛利下降呈現虧損(較96年度減少219.7億元)。在今年不發股利、96年12月於台灣廠及大陸廠大量裁員、減薪、放無薪假、停發加班費、伙食惡劣等節省成本措施後,為何營業成本仍舊大幅度增加?錢到底用到哪裡去了?是否省到不該省的地方?造成產品品質下降,NG率及不良片增多,必須給付巨額賠款給廠商?

真相二:全球關注勞資爭議、品牌商望之卻步!

勝華公司自97年12月裁員600多人爆發爭議,又因剝削勞工98年4月東莞萬士達7000名勞工罷工。勞資爭議迅速擴大引發全球關注。各大品牌商、大陸廠商皆收到員工陳情抗議書。兩岸三地勞工團體更於2009年6月10日(星期二)股東常會上公布首波最新的「勝華科技公司勞動調查報告」。資料顯示,勝華公司持續惡質違法剝削兩岸勞工,包括:強迫員工加班、超時工作嚴重、苛扣工資、不給法定休假、伙食惡劣造成食物中毒。勝華高層至今未正式出面與員工代表協商,僅由陳政慧處長在調解會上讓不到30名被裁員工復職,而其餘員工及廠內勞動條件皆無善意回應。勞資爭議擴大已影響勝華形象與接單狀況。去年第一名考上交大EMBA的黃顯雄董事長,是否不知情管理階層亂搞、虐待員工?刻薄員工待遇反使勝華產品品質下降?讓公司得負擔高額賠款?

真相三:高層主管領高薪、員工股東慘兮兮!

查97年度製造費用明細,薪資支出佔全部製造費6%,加工費用就佔了46%。勝華給付給加工廠商龐大費用,卻刻薄自己廠內員工。如此低的人事成本,在減薪裁員剝削勞工之後,到底挽救多少營運成本?又付出多少慘痛代價?

被裁員減薪多是現場基層員工,領的薪水低又少。可是高層主管月薪多是10幾萬,甚至還有50萬者,另外每月主管加給5,000~40,000元。這公平合理嗎?在管理不當、勞資爭議擴大、公司經營失利的情況下,經營管理幹部不該負起責任嗎?經營管理幹部是否該給員工和股東一個交代?

現場員工與高階主管薪資比較表:主管另有每月加給5,000~40,000元


















現場員工薪資分布 2A 3D
2A~3D不等 薪資14,880~22,400元 薪資25,000~55,000元
高層主管薪資分布 6 12
6~12不等 薪資40,000~120,000 薪資90,000~500,000



從上述資料顯示,勝華公司經營管理不當,經營管理幹部才應負起責任,才是勝華公司虧損的罪魁禍首。管理幹部不負責任,卻要員工和股東勒緊褲腰帶共體時艱,簡直蠻橫無理!尤其針對持續擴大的勞資爭議,仍不願面對解決,更是罪無可恕!

為保障員工及股東權益,我們強烈要求勝華科技公司高層盡速出面解決勞資爭議,與離職及在職員工選出的代表針對以下訴求協商,立即改善勞動條件、撤換不適任的管理幹部陳政慧處長!

行動訴求

1. 立即撤回在台灣及中國大陸的解雇令,並且停止對台灣廠及中國廠工人秋後算帳。

2. 立即改善勞動條件,如:依法給付加班費、改善中國大陸廠勞工伙食、廢除中國大陸廠內罰款制度。

3. 請勝華黃顯雄董事長、許振昌副總經理出面,與離職及在職的勝華台灣廠及中國大陸廠工人代表直接對話,共商解決勞資爭議方案,討論員工福利及整體工作環境。

4. 勝華管理高層向全體員工公開道歉,並保證維護員工合法合理權益。

5. 勝華管理高層邀請民間勞工團體及政府官員為全體員工提供勞動權益培訓。

Flawed Management, Questionable Quality, Runaway Orders! All The Truth Investors Have to Know About WINTEK!

Translated by laches

8:30 am on Tuesday June 10, 2009

At WINTEK Corporation Headquarter Taiwan

10, Chien-Kuo Road, TEPZ Tantzu, Taichung, Taiwan, R.O.C

We will announce our operation investigation of Wintek, containing relevant information to institutional and individual investors

Contact:Secretary General of NAFITU, Chu Wei-Li 0981-238732;wei-li-1210@yahoo.com.tw

Do you invest in Wintek? Do you have shares of Wintek? Did you lend money to Wintek? Did you place orders with Wintek? Are you one of Wintek’s suppliers? Wintek will assemble a shareholders’ meeting on June 10, 2009. Wintek claimed it’s having an operation loss, thus no dividends this year. In the shareholders’ meeting, to raise local and oversea funds, Wintek will propose to issue new common shares participating in global depositary receipt and also a new private placement of common shares. But, with its significantly flawed management, the new fund sources imply worse investments and greater loss! National Federation of Independent Trade Unions, WINTEK bargaining team and other labor organizations will come to the Wintek shareholders meeting to announce the truth that investors need to know. Shareholders, institutional investors, suppliers, be aware of those inconvenient truth highly relevant with Wintek’s stock price!

Truth 1: Wintek cut salaries and laid off employees, but the operation cost still soars

Wintek claimed a loss and declared no dividends this year. According to its 2008 statement of operations, compared with 2007, the sales have increased $6.87 billion TWD. Nonetheless, because of the high operation cost ($28.85 billion TWD more than 2007), the gross profit has declined sharply ($21.97 billion TWD lower than 2007.) Wintek cut salaries, laid off workers, forced employees to take unpaid leaves, stopped paying overtime compensation since December 2007; but the operation costs still soared in 2008. Investors need to examine this unusual cost increase. Why did operation costs still sky rocketed after cutting labor costs? Where has the money gone? Did Wintek’s flawed management raise the defective rate and end up in high indemnities?

Truth 2: The labor disputes in Wintek attracted global attention and became a concern to Wintek’s customers!

Wintek has been involved in labor disputes since the extensive layoff occurred in December 2008 and the large-scale 7,000-worker strike took place at MASSTOP in Dongguan in April 2009. The labor disputes attracted global attention. All Wintek’s global brand manufactures and Chinese suppliers received workers’ joint statement of protest. In the shareholders’ meeting on June 10 2009, the labor organizations in China and Taiwan will announce the most updated “Wintek Labor Investigation Report.” According to the report, Wintek continues to exploit labor. The illegal labor measures include forcing workers to work overtime, illegally extending overtime working hours, cutting compensations and salaries, canceling holidays, providing unsanitary food which caused on-site food poisoning. The Wintek executives haven’t faced up to these labor disputes. These labor disputes have already damaged Wintek’s corporate image and they have become a concern to the foreign customers, lowering their incentive to place orders to Wintek. Did president Huang know that the labor disputes already damaged Wintek’s image and sales? Did president Huang know that the illegal labor measures already lowered the product quality and boosted indemnities?

Truth 3: The executives enjoy high salaries, while the workers and shareholders pay the price!

According to the operation costs in 2008, the salary expense was only 6% of total operation cost but the outsourced processing costs amounted to 46%. Wintek paid a huge amount to the outsourced companies but spent little on its own on-site labor. Since the on-site labor was only a small portion of operation costs, there is no need to cut the on-site salary at the price of damaging corporate image.

The majority of workers who got laid off were factory laborers. However, compared to the executives’ compensation, the average salary of factory workers is very low. The average salary of the executives at Wintek is more than $100,000 TWD per month and the additional monthly manager bonus range from $5000 to $40,000 TWD. Some managers even get $500,000 TWD a month. Is it fair for the workers and shareholders? The executives enjoy high salaries, but the workers and shareholders have to pay the price. The executives have to take responsibility for labor disputes and operation losses. We shareholders and workers demand the executives to take full responsibly and cut their own high salaries!

 The salary
gap between basic workers and executives





















Basic workers 2A 3D
2A~3D $14,880~$22,400 TWD

per month

Per month



    *The additional monthly
    manager bonus range from NT$5000 to NT $40,000.


The salary gap between basic workers and executives

From the statistics above we can see that the executives at Wintek enjoy high salaries but don’t pay the price of their own bad management. The executives and managers do not take responsibility and the price of flawed management should not be paid by shareholders and basic workers.

To protect the shareholders’ rights, we demand that the executives at Wintek face up to the labor disputes immediately. Wintek should negotiate with the labor representatives selected both by employees and laid-off workers, improve labor conditions at once and replace the unqualified manager Cheng-Hwei Chen.


1. WINTEK must restore the jobs taken from the workers who were laid off in Taiwan and China, withdraw the demonstration lawsuit, and promise no retaliation on workers.

2. WINTEK must improve its working conditions immediately, pay the overtime compensation, provide sanitary food and abandon the fine system in the China manufacturing sites.

3. Present Huang and Vice President Hsu must hold direct talks with the labor representatives, negotiate a practical solution to the labor disputes, and examine the working environment and labor rights.

4. The executives at Wintek must apologize to all the employees and promise to protect all workers’ rights.

5. The executives at Wintek must provide its workers with the labor rights trainings. The training should be held by the officials or labor organizations.

尖端科技、毫無人性?! 抗議科技大廠剝削兩岸勞工!

0602前進台北國際電腦展開幕典禮抗議行動採訪通知

尖端科技、毫無人性?!

抗議科技大廠剝削兩岸勞工!

時間:2009年6月2日(星期二)上午09:30

地點:台北世貿南港館(北市南港區經貿二路1號,捷運南港站約4分鐘路程)

聯絡人:自主工聯執行長 朱維立0981-238732

家喻戶曉的廣告詞,「科技始終來自於人性」,對比現在科技大廠內勞工被剝削處境,我們不禁要問,尖端科技為甚麼愈來愈毫無人性?

2009年台北國際電腦大展於6月2日(星期二)上午10:00在台北世貿南港館開幕。這個亞洲最大專業電腦展,吸引年營業額10億美元以上的全球知名品牌商到場,將是台灣供應廠商卯足全力搶訂單的好時機!但這些日新月異、華麗時尚的科技產品背後,盡是大老闆們為求暴利,剝削中國大陸與台灣勞工血汗的成果!全國自主勞工聯盟、勝華科技員工自救會等台灣勞工團體將前往電腦展開幕典禮,公布科技大廠將本求利剝削勞工的賺錢真相,強烈要求品牌商立即督促供應商落實行為準則,停止剝削兩岸勞工!

勝華科技公司身為台灣知名的供應商,承接各國際品牌商的訂單,Apple、NOKIA、Motorola、三星、宏達電、廣達皆為其主要客戶。勝華科技公司(負責人黃顯雄,總公司:台中縣潭子鄉台中加工出口區建國路10號),其市佔率已是台灣小尺寸手機面板廠、觸控式螢幕排名第一、全球排名前三強。這一年來接連於台灣、中國大陸爆發裁員、剝削勞工事件。

勝華科技公司首先於2008年12月無預警解雇600多名台灣廠勞工,並持續減薪、放無薪假、停發加班費,急單湧入後,員工一人做數人的工作,連續加班不敢休假,竟還領不到加班費。不少員工被剝奪從清明節到端午節的法定假期、無薪休假被召回上班不給工資、濫用派遣工(時薪110元,簽約三個月)。且經台灣政府勞動檢查諸多嚴重違法事項。另外,勝華科技所屬東莞萬士達公司,苛扣員工加班費、津貼,晚班員工伙食只能吃早班的剩菜餿水,2009年4月更爆發集體食物中毒。勝華公司甚至還違法解雇不滿而罷工的19名員工。(請見0602行動新聞資料:勝華科技公司違法暨違反供應商行為準則事項)

全國自主勞工聯盟、勝華科技員工自救會等台灣勞工團體,於2009年6月2日(星期二)上午09:30至台北國際電腦展抗議,強烈呼籲Apple、NOKIA、Motorola、三星、宏達電、廣達等勝華科技公司的主要客戶,部分也是參與本次台北國際電腦大展的重要知名廠商,在展示尖端科技、殺價下單之餘,更應負起企業社會責任,按照供應商行為準則,督促勝華科技公司盡速出面解決勞資爭議!

行動訴求我們強烈呼籲品牌商按照供應商行為準則,

1. 立即要求勝華撤回在台灣及中國大陸的解雇令,並且要求勝華停止對台灣廠及中國廠工人秋後算帳。

2. 立即要求勝華改善勞動條件,如:依法給付加班費、改善中國大陸廠勞工伙食。

3. 要求勝華允許第三方勞工團體入廠進行勞動檢查,公開事件,追究責任。並且根據勞動檢查結果及勝華科技的改善狀況,立即檢討對勝華科技的訂單。

4. 勝華必須尊重勞工代表的意願,立即與勞工自主選出的勝華台灣廠及中國大陸廠工人代表直接對話,有效監察企業行為。

Technology without Humanity?! Protest against Exploitation of Workers in Taiwan and China

Translated by Timo

Time: 2009 June 2 (Tue.) 9:30 am

Place: Taipei World Trade Center Nangang Exhibition Hall

As a famous commercial slogan goes, “technology always comes from humanity.” But what we know now is, in stark contrast, the fact that workers are exploited in high-tech corporations. Why makes technology more and more inhuman?

COMPUTEX TAIPEI takes place from June 2, 2009 at Taipei World Trade Center Nangang Exhibition Hall. This is the largest professional computer exhibition in Asia and attracts as much as $1 billion USD from global corporations, making COMPUTEX an excellent place for Taiwanese computer suppliers to do business. However, behind these trendy tech commodities are bloody exploitation of labors in Taiwan and China. NAFITU, WINTEK labor bargaining team and other labor rights organizations will go to the opening of COMPUTEX Exhibition to expose the reality to the public, and request APPLE Inc. to execute its Code of Conduct, to end the exploitation of labors in Taiwan and China.

WINTEK does business with leading international corporations, including Apple Inc. , NOKIA, Motorola, Samsung, HTC, and HUAWEI. WINTEK is a famous supplier from Taiwan, and enjoys the largest market share in Taiwan in small size mobile phone panels and touch panels, and ranks No. 3 in the world. However, it has recently gained global notoriety for labor issues in Taiwan and China. (Owner: Huang Hsien-Hsiung, Address: No.10, Jianguo Rd., Tanzih Township, Taichung County, Taiwan).

In Dec. 2008, WINTEK laid off over 600 workers in Taiwan without any notice in advance and kept cutting workers’ salary, forcing unpaid leaves on employees, and paying no overtime wages. Recently, WINTEK received big and urgent orders and tried to force workers to do more work without any vacation or overtime pay. Many employees had to work during national holidays, or mandatory unpaid leaves without due salary. The company also exploits contract workers harshly ($110 TWD, equivalent of $3 USD per hour, with a contract lasting for three months).

Besides, MASSTOP in Dongguan, a subsidiary factory of WINTEK, cut workers’ salary, overtime pay and subsidies, and night-shift workers are forced to eat leftover food since morning, resulting in an incident of food poisoning on April 3, in which hundreds of workers fell ill. WINTEK even illegally laid off 19 workers who joined the strike against the foul working condition. (Please see June 2 News Release for more details).

NAFITU, WINTEK bargaining team, and other labor organizations will protest against WINTEK at the opening of COMPUTEX on June 2, 2009 at 9:30 am in Taipei World Trade Center Nangang Exhibition Hall. We strongly appeal to the major clients of WINTEK, such as Apple Inc. , NOKIA, Motorola, Samsung, HTC, and Quanta to take their corporate social responsibilities and follow the Supplier Code of Conduct to request WINTEK to resolve the labor issues.

Appeals / Demands

1. WINTEK must follow the international Supplier Code of Conduct and give jobs back to workers who were laid off in Taiwan and Mainland China, withdraw the lawsuit of defamation, and promise no retaliation on workers.

2. WINTEK must improve its working condition immediately, including overtime pay and appropriate meals provided in the factories in China.

3. We request to have third-party labour unions or organization to enter WINTEK’s factories to inspect its working condition, and let the public know the situation. Besides, these clients should review its order to WINTEK based on the results of the inspection and WINTEK’s improvement.

4. WINTEK must respect the will of the representatives of labours and make direct talks with them. These representatives should be chosen by WINTEK workers in Taiwan and Mainland China.

Condemn Apple and Wintek Corporation for Disregarding Corporate Social Responsibility and Workers’ Appeals

23/5/2009

The Wintek Corporation’s violation of laws and exploitation of workers in Taiwan and mainland China have aroused anger among workers, environmental and social movement organizations around the world. Because of Wintek’s refusal to restore all the jobs to the employees in Taiwan and mainland China and improve the working conditions, around one hundred people, including the Wintek Workers Self-help Group and local labor movement organizations in Taiwan, gathered in front of Apple — of whom Wintek is a major supplier — on 21 May 2009, revealing all the relevant information, asking Apple to comply with its own Supplier Code of Conduct and demand Wintek to negotiate with its employees.

We had informed the management of Apple about this action several days beforehand, but Apple showed arrogance and sent no representatives to receive our public letter and relevant information. It even lied through the police’s teeth that there were nobody working that day. It is hard to believe that such a giant transnational corporation would lie and shirk responsibility in the face of labor organizations.

Apple, a leading brand in technology application, reports 15% profit growth in its first quarter of 2009. It is indisputable that Apple has to take its corporate social responsibility seriously. Therefore we ask Apple to respond publicly to our appeal by 31 May, to demand that Wintek stop exploiting workers in Taiwan and mainland China. Otherwise we will appeal to global workers and consumers to condemn corporations and stop buying sweatshop products.

Besides, as a member of Electronics Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC), Apple has been retreating from its promised social responsibility. Therefore we also ask the EICC to investigate into the conduct of Apple.

Wintek issued a press release on 21 May, stating that “it has dealt with this labor issue in accordance with the law, having agreed to restore jobs to those laid-off workers under certain conditions (e.g. pregnant women and veteran workers). It accuses labor organizations of violating the agreement and instigating some laid-off workers to demand unlawful benefits.” But paying the 6,000 NT dollars fine does not make Wintek’s measures legal. In fact, at the conciliation meeting with workers in the Taichung factory, Wintek only agreed to restore jobs to some 20 workers, who were asked to repay the redundancy payment and were denied their salary during unemployment. The workers could not but accept. Except for the Taichung factory, Wintek has not responded to the factories in Yangmei and mainland China. More importantly, the working conditions have continued to deteriorate, with overtime unpaid, wage cuts, and statutory holidays cancelled. We are further informed on 20th May that subsidies and awards are not paid, and food problems are getting serious in mainland China factories. Wintek’s refusal to take seriously workers’ rights and appeals will surely lead to more intense resistance, and the labor organizations have taken legal actions and gained wide support.

Where there is oppression, there is resistance. Wintek workers have lost their jobs for six months and have to borrow money to make ends meet. We are grieved and vexed at the abominable conduct of Wintek and Apple, and deeply moved by workers showing solidarity and struggling for justice.

Major clients of Wintek, including NOKIA, Motorola, Samsung and HTC, should also take the responsibility of urging Wintek to resolve this labor rights issue; otherwise they may also become targets of public protest.

無視企業社會責任 強烈譴責蘋果傲慢拒絕聆聽勞工訴求

聯絡人:自主工聯執行長 朱維立0981238732

台商勝華科技公司違法剝削兩岸勞工事件,持續擴大發酵,不分在職或離職、台灣或中國大陸,廠內外勞工皆團結對抗資方的打壓剝削,並獲得全球各地勞工、環保、社運團體聲援支持。因資方不願全部恢復台灣廠及中國大陸廠被解雇員工工作權、持續惡化廠內勞動條件,勝華科技員工自救會與台灣勞工社運團體近100人,於2009年5月21日上午10:00,至勝華公司最大訂單來源美商蘋果公司(以下簡稱Apple)前抗議,勞工社運團體將約半年來仔細調查並整理出來的勝華科技剝削勞工的相關資料準備齊全,要求Apple應依自訂的供應商行為準則,督促勝華與員工協商,盡速解決勞資爭議,否則檢討與勝華的合作關係。

我們早於活動數天前將訊息告知蘋果高層,但Apple卻極為傲慢,不僅不派出代表接受勝華科技員工自救會與台灣勞工社運團的公開信及相關證據資料,甚至還間接透過警方以傳話的方式說謊,表示Apple當天休假,辦公室無人上班。實在難以置信堂堂一個大型跨國公司,面對勞工團體時,居然用欺騙、龜縮等蒙上眼睛、摀上耳朵的方式傲慢面對。

Apple,一個國際知名品牌的跨國企業,2009年第一季暴利成長15%。面對勞工社運團體的建言、特別是為他在生產線上流血流汗、賣命打拚的勞工求救,不願積極處理,還避之惟恐不及,逃避應盡的企業社會責任。我們仍要求Apple在5月31日前,公開回應我們的訴求,具體承諾勞工訴求,要求勝華科技停止剝削兩岸的勞工,不可與勝華科技同流合污,踐踏勞工。否則我們將呼續全球勞工、消費大眾一同譴責黑心企業,拒買血腥商品!

同時,Apple作為EICC(Electronic Industry citizenship coalition)的會員之一,卻用如此傲慢的手法應對受迫害勞工,已經違反其加入EICC時所承諾的企業社會責任之義務,我們也公開呼籲EICC立即調查Apple的行為。

勝華科技公司更於2009年5月21日當日,對外及對各連署團體發出新聞稿,表示「一切依法處理勞工事宜,已同意符合一定條件的被資遣人員(例如:孕婦、接近符合可申請退休資格人員)可以回復工作,更指控特定勞工團體破壞協議,多次鼓動及號召部份被資遣員工向勝華要求回復工作權或法定之外的更多利益。」。勝華是否違法,不是自己說了算,或許是已由官方開罰的兩筆確認違法的6,000元罰款微不足道,令勝華以為自己並無違法。回復工作權的部分,勝華公司僅在與台中廠員工的調解會上,同意回復20餘名員工工作,要復職員工一次償還資遣費,並不給付裁員期間工資,員工僅能無奈接受。但對楊梅廠、中國大陸廠勞工訴求毫無回應。更重要的是,勝華廠內勞動條件持續惡化,員工加班領不到加班費,無薪休假上班沒有工資、不少員工連續上班沒有休假,被剝奪從清明節到端午節的法定假期。我們在5月20日更接到最新消息,中國大陸廠的津貼、獎金沒著落,伙食問題持續惡化。不平則鳴,各廠員工的團結反抗,豈是無的放矢。勝華公司繼續無視員工心聲,恐將面對員工更激烈反撲、社會大眾的唾棄!勝華對特定勞工團體的打壓與指控,該團體已採取法律行動,並獲得社運團體聲援支持。

哪裡有壓迫,哪裡就有反抗!勝華裁員至今六個月,員工失去工作也六個月了,資遣費、失業給付皆已用罄,開始舉債度日維生,卻還討不回該有的公道。對於勝華與Apple剝削勞工並不願改善其惡行,我們感動心痛與遺憾!而勝華各地及廠內外勞工表現難得的堅決與團結,將提高抗爭強度與規模,勢與黑心企業奮戰到底!

最後,我們再次呼籲,勝華公司的其他主要客戶,NOKIA、Motorola、三星、宏達電、華為也應負起責任督促勝華解決勞資爭議,否則也將成為員工、社會大眾抗議與唾棄的目標。
