Striking workers at a plant supplying parts to Honda Motors’ China operations have issued a long list of demands for returning to work, aiming to win better conditions commensurate with China’s rising economic clout.

They also asked Japanese management to apologise to Chinese workers for its conduct during the standoff, and to promise not to lay off any employees for two years.

Stoppages at foreign-run factories across China by workers demanding pay increases disrupted operations for several weeks in May and June, but the wave of unrest tapered off by the end of last month.

The latest strike began on Monday when the plant operated by Atsumitec Co tried to fire 90 workers seeking better pay and conditions.
