Unofficial sources at Shimano said that the strike at its facility in Kunshan, China was brought to an end on April 10. The strike is expected to have no impact on deliveries, the company said. The Kunshan facility, which produces entry-level bicycle components mainly made for the Chinese market, is one of Shimano's largest factories, employing more than 1,200 people. The strike had started on April 4 and had brought production to a complete shutdown. Workers complained about the relocation of the factory. The Chinese government asked Shimano to move the facility to a new industrial park. Shimano accepted the proposal and is now ready to move the factory. Local sources said that Shimano wanted to lay-off some workers due to the move. Even though these workers were compensated, some of them claimed they had not been paid well enough. Shimano's compensation is said to have been in line with local legal regulations.
