Taipei, Nov. 15 (CNA) Nearly 700 people who worked for flat panel supplier Chunghwa Picture Tubes Ltd. (CPT) before it declared bankruptcy in September protested outside CPT's parent company Friday, demanding back pay owed to them.

The protesters, led by Su Kuo-che (蘇國哲), head of the CPT Trade Union, and Taoyuan County Central Union president Lee Chao-chang (李朝掌), appealed to conglomerate Tatung Co. for payment of back wages, severance pay and retirement pensions owed them by Taoyuan-based CPT.

Tatung was CPT's largest shareholder with about a 40 percent stake.

Outside of Tatung headquarters, the protesters ran into security guards while trying to enter the building to talk to company executives, after two Tatung executives showed up to receive a written petition but left without making any comment.    [FULL  STORY]
