TAIPEI, April 21 A strike at Taiwan touchscreen
specialist Wintek's 2384.TW factory in China has been resolved
and has not affected production, its spokesman said on Tuesday.
Wintek is a key supplier of touchscreens to top brand names
such as Apple (AAPL.O). It received orders from Apple for 10-inch
touchscreens, a source told Reuters last month, amid talk that
the U.S. firm is developing a touchscreen PC. [ID:nTP374787]
Wintek also makes touchscreens for Apple's popular iPhone.
Some workers at Wintek's factory in the city of Dongguan in
the heart of the Pearl River Delta went on strike last week over
pay, the spokesman said.
"I can't say for sure how many people took part in the
strike, but work has since resumed and our production won't be
affected," James Chen told Reuters, adding that the facility
employs between 6,000 and 7,000 workers.
The case is the latest one of labour unrest at a factory in
southern China's crowded coastal cities, where many companies
have had to grapple with rising costs in recent years as more
firms move into the area and living standards rise.
Wintek shares rose by their 7 percent daily maximum limit on
Tuesday, outpacing the benchmark TAIEX .TWII share index's 1.73
