US boss held in China leaves plant after payout
Beijing: A US company boss has been released after he and a union representative say a pay dispute was resolved with the Chinese workers who had been detaining him at a Beijing plant.
Chip Starnes said today, a deal was reached overnight to pay the scores of workers who had demanded severance packages similar to ones given to laid-off co-workers in a phased-out division, even though the company said the remaining workers weren`t being laid off.
Neither Starnes nor district labor official Chu Lixiang gave details of the agreed compensation. Chu said all of the workers would be terminated, and Starnes said some of them would be rehired later.
Chu told reporters that the dispute was resolved "to each side`s satisfaction."
