The reason behind the strike is apparently due to Nokia putting their factory in Donggun on hold temporarily for whatever reason, and the workers aren’t too happy about the reduced salary during this period of non-work. However according to sources, Nokia’s other factories are still operational, so perhaps this pause on the Donggun factory might not necessarily be related to the Microsoft-Nokia deal. Nokia’s factories are expected to be transferred over to Microsoft as part of the deal, so it is believed that these workers are striking perhaps in a bid to curtail any negative impact this might have on their jobs. Either way hopefully more information will be made available soon.
