Unions Strike Hard on Wage Defaulting

Early this year, trade unions in Wendeng District in Weihai City, Shandong province, in collaboration with government departments concerned, carried out a campaign to crack down on wage defaults for migrant workers. Meanwhile, the trade unions conducted safety checks on all projects under construction.

The campaign focused on wage arrears, minimum wage violations, overtime pay. During the campaign, trade unions issued improvement notices to employers who had withheld workers’ wages, and instructed construction contractors to conduct safety reviews and make rectifications if safety hazards were spotted.
