Another protest at Dayang Shipbuilding as Sinopacific ceo resigns

Nearly a thousand workers of Dayang Shipbuilding, an affiliate shipyard of Sinopacific Shipbuilding, protested in front of the shipyard yesterday over salary arrears.

It is the third worker protest of Dayang Shipbuilding in the past year.

A representative of the local government said Dayang Shipbuilding has already agreed to bring in new investor, SUMEC Group, a machinery manufacturer in Jiangsu under the government’s coordination, and the shipyard will confirm the dates for salary payment as soon as possible.

Dayang Shipbuilding currently plans to lay off 600 employees. Its parent Sinopacific is also facing financial difficulties; it is getting rid of its entire Shanghai operations in order to cut costs.

Sources at Sinopacific Shipbuilding told Splash that Jiang Qiang, ceo of Sinopacific Shipbuilding, has handed in his resignation letter.
