A leaked presentation from Samsung reveals a working environment with threats, sexual harassment, extreme overtime work and opposition to the formation of trade unions.
The last barely two months have not been an easy time for Samsung, whose new top model, Galaxy Note 7, have caused both manufacturer and consumers with serious problems.
The situation was hardly better, since the newspaper the New York Times earlier this week through the persons with the knowledge of the manufacturer could report on a highly chaotic time during the withdrawal of the phone, where it was forbidden for employees to communicate over email for fear of possible litigation and subpoenas. All communications should therefore be conducted offline, it sounds.
And to make matters worse suggests something that Samsung, if not ever, then certainly have had serious problems with what the company’s working culture and environment are concerned. A PowerPoint presentation leaked by the Association International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) reveals for harrowing details of working conditions internally at Samsung, where ‘ inhumane conditions are prevalent, ‘ according to the ITUC.
PowerPoint presentation discusses the problems with ‘troublesome employees’, which has affected the workflow with Samsung. The presentation is from 2014 and has allegedly been used at least until 2014, it sounds.
Great resistance to unions
A recurrent theme in the leaked presentation is a great resistance to the formation of trade unions, just as there can be seen very negatively on these. Yes, actually praktiseredes a ‘ no fagforening’-system. Several places in presentation be seen that several leaders of trade unions has been ‘ exposed to rough handling ‘, while there also have been ‘ internal conflict ‘.
Samsung-staff have also expressed concern about whether the South Korean Government would implement new rules on the working environment.
It is noteworthy that the Samsung also uses space to make its employees aware of the fact that there can be up to two years in prison by breaking South Korea’s law on trade unions. Just below adds a red, clear page point of law, namely, that ‘only a financial penalty is enforced in practice’ – which, according to the newspaper The Register implied will say that Samsung is paying the Bill.
Just after that sound, that ‘in the event of a trial on unfair labor practices is the existence of evidence the decisive point’ – something that indirectly can sound as if that bad behavior does not have consequences, so long as there is no evidence.
‘Fuckhoved’, ‘møgkælling’ and ‘forpulede asshole’
The language of the workflows are also quite terrible according to the many examples, as in the presentation are highlighted as being used by Samsung’s employees and management. From a Samsung Electronics vice president sounded it, among other things: ‘Fuckhoveder, in never understand what I say.’
As would a Director of Samsung’s LED-division have said: ‘bitch, forpulede asshole. I rip your mouth. You have to be careful now’ as well as a host of other epithets.
In conversations between several leading Samsung-people there are also numerous examples of profanity, used very extensively, inter alia. ‘ møgsvin ‘ and ‘ idiot ‘.
Sexual harassment was also a part of everyday life, according to the information. 26 cases occurred in 2010, while there were 22 in 2011. Samsung has, among other things. the following note: “if we do not clearly manages to take action by these cases, they will aggravate our corporate reputation by requesting a recommendation to the Commission on human rights, which will bring (civil) lawsuit and involve the media with more ‘.
100 hours of monthly overtime led to suicide
It is certainly not the only opposition to unions and the bad language, which has led to an unhealthy and bad working environment. The leaked presentation points for also working overtime as a problem with Samsung.
An employee, Kim, had no less than 100 hours of overtime a month over a period of 9 months. It ended up costing him his life. In the material, it appears that ‘reason for his suicide is depression caused by the unusually many working hours’.
Extreme overtime, however, was not unusual. A widow describes that ‘my husband died from overwork’, however, sounds which the diagnosis of stomach cancer.
The Association the ITUC also describes to employees daily rises in 11-12 hours and to a female employee’s only slept about two or three hours a night ‘ over a period of three months up to the launch of a Samsung tablet. Therefore, she was forced to stop with that sucks its only three-month-old infant.
The newspaper The Register has for some time been awaiting a comment from Samsung about the leaked material, but it has yet to hear from the South Korean manufacturer.
