SHANGHAI — Employees are beginning to return to work after a massive protest at factories of one of the world’s largest shoe manufacturers located in the southern Chinese city of Dongguan.
The strike at the manufacturing facilities operated by Yue Yuen Holdings Ltd., which makes shoes for a number of global brands, including Nike Inc. and Adidas AG, has involved tens of thousands of workers over employee benefits. Labor rights groups say the strike is one of the largest in recent Chinese history. It began in early April and escalated over the past week and a half after Yue Yuen failed to meet the workers’ demands.
