LG Semicon DRAM strike continues

But a "special bonus" might drag workers back

Hopes are rising that LG Semicon workers in Korea, who have been on strike since the 24th of January, will shortly return to work. The trade unions walked out as a result of uncertainty over their future following a decision to merge LG Semicon with Hyundai Electronics. Asian reports said today that a resumption of work may happen as soon as the 6th of February. LG Semicon has decided to award its workers a "special bonus" in the hope that will bring them back to make DRAMs. ® Related Stories LG Semicon strikes threatened Hyundai workers down tools in sympathy with LG
