Lenovo tells IBM to sort out strikes

Written by Nick Farrell


 
Not our problem

PC maker Lenovo said it was up to IBM to resolve a wildcat strike at a China-based factory, as a deal to buy the US company's server business had yet to be finalized.

More than 1,000 workers went on strike last week to protest over the terms of their potential transfer to Lenovo, which said in January it would buy one of the server businesses of Biggish Blue for $2.3 billion. Lenovo said the strike was an internal matter for IBM but it also pledged to maintain the salaries and benefits of all workers that chose to stay with the company after the deal is completed.

"Lenovo and IBM are two independent companies. Any integration between Lenovo and IBM's x86 server department will not be conducted until the deal is closed," the statement said. "To ensure a smooth transition, Lenovo is committed to provide opportunity for all employees from IBM's x86 server department who transfer to Lenovo, without any reduction of their wages and benefits," it added.
