Workers at this Chinese Factory in the US Are Voting to Unionize

By Sahid Fawaz

We usually hear of American factories operating in China but not the other way around. And this time the workers are considering becoming union.

13abc.com reports:

“Workers for a Chinese glass maker in southwest Ohio will vote on union representation next month.

The Dayton Daily News reports employees of Fuyao Glass America Inc. facility in Moraine have agreed with the United Auto Workers to vote on unionization Nov. 8 and 9.

Workers have cited a pattern of unsafe workplace conditions, arbitrary policies and unfair treatment on the job. Safety regulators at the Occupational Safety and Health Administration repeatedly found unsafe working conditions at the plant after it started operations in 2015.

A group of Republican state lawmakers published an open letter last week expressing concerns with ‘outside forces trying to come into Fuyao.’

Some Ohio Democrats have previously spoken out in support of Fuyao workers unionizing.”
