More than 1,000 workers at an IBM factory in southern China have gone on strike against the terms of their transfer to Chinese PC maker Lenovo Group Ltd caused by the U.S. companys $2.3 billion sale of its low-end server business. Several workers gather outside gate of the International Business Machines Corp factory in Shenzhen on Thursday said production remains suspended for a fourth straight day. So far, weve heard nothing from the management or the government in response to our demands, said Hou Hongbo, a 10- year worker at the factory. The companys attitude so far is to ignore us, but the entire production remains shut down. The workers want higher pay if they choose to transfer to Lenovo or higher severance packages if they choose to leave.
