LG workers go on strike

Yet another world-beating scoop from your news wire upstarts

As predicted here two weeks ago, production of DRAM at LG Semicon in Korea has come to a stop because the workers have gone on strike. (Story: LG Semi strike threatened) The move has taken place because Hyundai, which will take over its semiconductor production, would not issue seven year contracts to LG Semicon staff. The workers at LG Semicon are, probably justifiably, worried about the future of their jobs. While some workers have stormed out of LG Semicon's fabs in South Korea, others have gone on a go-slow. Workers at the LG Semicon fab in Wales are also worried about their jobs but do not appear to have joined the strike action. ®
