Spektra Alucast workers seeking protection from alleged management abuses have received no reply to their letter to the Vietnamese Embassy.

March 26, 2009: The Coalition to Abolish Modern-day Slavery in Asia (CAMSA) is continuing to investigate the reported mistreatment of Vietnamese guest workers at the Malaysia-based firm Spektra Alucast.

According to sources contacted by CAMSA staff on the ground, the workers of Spektra Alucast have sent a letter about their situation to the Vietnamese Embassy in Kuala Lumpur, but to no avail.

“We’ve sent a fax to the Vietnamese Embassy, but have yet to hear anything from them,” one worker told CAMSA.

CAMSA’s research also suggests that the 31 Vietnamese guest workers at Spektra Alucast were recruited because they all come from the poorer, more rural, and more economically vulnerable areas of Vietnam.
