TAIPEI, Taiwan — The labor union of Formosa Chemicals and Fibre Corp.’s (FCFC) Changhua plant is planning to mobilize 5,000 people for a third protest against Changhua County Government for its refusal to renew the factory’s three power generators.
The demonstration is slated for Oct. 15, local media reported Saturday, which was to be the plant’s final day of operation.
Key members of the labor union reportedly held a closed-door meeting Saturday afternoon to plan the third protest, as two protests staged over the past week by the plant’s 1,000 employees had failed to achieve results, the Chinese-language United Daily News reported.
The Changhua County Government continued to deny a request to renew the plant’s three power generators. [FULL STORY]
