In the global and China forklift industry report 2010-2011, you’ll find out the key drivers driving sales in the industry. For example, China is the largest manufacturer of forklifts, accounting for more than 60% of all forklift sales. And while the global market is relatively stable, China has experienced rapid growth over the past five years. However, there are several problems associated with the Chinese market.
One of the key challenges facing Chinese-run operations in Zambia is labor law.
Union representatives have been intimidated and even “charged” by Chinese managers for attending union meetings. The Chinese management also threatened to terminate their contracts if they did not adhere to its union rules. However, this situation is not limited to Chinese-run operations. Other countries with low labor standards may also experience labor unrest and mistreatment, especially when it comes to the workplace.
