British Labour Party ‘pragmatic’ about improving ties with EU

More than 6,500 workers at Samsung Electronics joined a second strike in a month on Monday, adding to the challenge for the South Korean giant as it tries to address a weak position in its advanced memory chip division.

The National Samsung Electronics Union, which has more than 30,000 members — a quarter of the company’s workforce — went on strike after taking collective annual leave in June. It is the union’s first strike in Samsung’s 55-year history.

The union is demanding that Samsung respect labor practices, improve performance-related bonuses and increase holiday pay.

The three-day strike comes as Samsung struggles to address concerns about the company’s declining technological competitiveness, particularly in high-bandwidth memory chips used to train artificial intelligence models.
