Werden Samsung Arbeiter auch in der Slowakei schlecht behandelt?

Erst gestern berichteten wir über die mutmaßlich schlechten Arbeitsbedingungen in einer Samsung Fabrik in Brasilien, heute sind schon wieder Informationen über schlechte Behandlung von Arbeitern in einer Fabrik in der Slowakei aufgetaucht.


SamMobile hat eine Email erhalten, in der die schlechten Bedingungen aufgezählt werden. Laut dem Bericht leiden Arbeiter in einer Fabrik von Samsung Display unter extremer Hitze, ohne dabei Wasser angeboten zu bekommen oder die Toilette benutzen zu dürfen.

Außerdem werden Arbeiter unter Druck gesetzt, nicht über die Probleme in der Fabrik zu sprechen, besonders nach dem Tod eines Mannes in seinen 50ern. Die Todesursache war ein Herzinfarkt, nachdem der Mann selbst nach seiner Kündigung dazu gezwungen wurde, seine Schicht zu beenden. 

Ob die Anschuldigungen so stimmen, können wir nicht bestätigen, sodass wir auf eine Stellungnahme von Samsung warten müssen.

1. Even though the temperature outside the factory was 40 degrees centigrade or more, the factory wasn’t on A/C, nor did they provide water for the poor workers, nor did they let them go to toilet.
2. Some workers peed or pood themselves, because their teamleaders shouted at them that if they don’t stay on the production line, they will get fired.
3. Dress code must have been adhered to, even when the temperature went past the legal limit.
4. After I posted an article about this issue, the employer, Samsung Display started to threaten its employees. They said that if they catch someone speaking to media, they will be fired effective immediately.
5. Many comments (400+) + emails suggest that this is an ongoing issue and has been for many years.
6. One email in particular is sickening. One man in his 50s was working for Samsung Display, he resigned that they but had to finish that particular shift. Because he was so exhausted, he went into cardiac arrest and eventually died. They didn’t even call an ambulance, instead, they put im into the box, covered him and waited for the shift to finish. When local TVs turned up, they said that they can’t let them in, because they manufacturing secret could be uncovered. WHAT?
7. The toilet issue is really bothering women. If they have peroid, they should be allowed to go to toilet more often than twice a day. In some cases, they are marked like jews during the second world war, but this time because they have peroid, so the teamleader know they can go to toilet more oftne. This highly personal thing is then revealed to everybody. I still cannot understand how this can be going on.
8. PHYSICAL punishment isn’t anything new. Korean bosses are known to walk around with a stick a whipping their workers if they don’t do it properly. Even worse than that, verbal abuse is what makes this work unbearable. Swear words, threats like “I will kill you” are heard on regular basis.
