The latest developments in that case include a visit by CAMSA staff to confer with the workers, and a further visit to Spektra Alucast management to set forth the conditions for a just settlement to the matter.

CAMSA continues to press Spektra Alucast for more cooperation around several key points, including:

– financial settlements for eight workers previously sent back to Vietnam
– compensation and wages of a particular worker who was injured on the job
– back wages owed to some 24 workers
– revelation of the whereabouts of several workers previously transferred to other firms, and arrangement for their back wages

CAMSA and key local partners such as Tenaganita will continue to monitor the workers’ situation and provide reports via this site. Thank you for your concern for the lives of the Vietnamese guest workers at Spektra Alucast and elsewhere throughout the world!
