Nestle workers ended a one-day strike yesterday after reaching a preliminary agreement with management. Some 30 deliverymen had staged a sit-in outside the food company's factory in Yuen Long to protest against the suspension of two colleagues, including union head Chan Bong-yin. They were suspended because they shared an annual bonus, a HK$5,000 supermarket voucher, among themselves. Nestle felt their action interfered with staff competitiveness, while the union contended that Nestle was trying to weaken the union. The union workers demanded Nestle reinstate the workers, and give the union better recognition. With the assistance of the Labour Department, union representatives and Nestle management agreed to deal with the workers' concerns. Mung Siu-tat, of the Confederation of the Trade Unions, said: 'First, concerning the resumption of duties, the company promised they would discuss it and come up with a reply tonight and they also pledged a thorough investigation would be conducted.' Management also promised to meet union representatives to consider ways to enhance communication between the two parties. Nestle said it was pleased a consensus had been reached and that full delivery of dairy products would resume immediately.
