NINH BINH – More than a thousand workers at a garment manufacturing facility in Vietnam have gone on strike in protest over unpaid Tet bonuses traditionally awarded to staff in-line with the Lunar New Year.

Each year, Vietnam celebrates the Lunar New Year to welcome in springtime, as per the national calendar. With this, employees are gifted Tet bonuses which can greatly fluctuate in value – from the equivalent of a month’s salary to an employee’s annual salary – dependent on the firm’s performance the year prior.

Workers at Ever Great International Vietnam Co., however, allege that their employer has only provided bonuses equal to that of only half a month’s wage, prompting many to strike until the company pays up.
