ITUC says that "inhumane" employee conditions led to issue with the Samsung Galaxy Note 7

As we said, the presentation provides strategies that Samsung's management could employ to prevent labor unions from representing Samsung employees. In the power point presentation, Samsung management was told to treat employees as enemies and was given ways to dominate them. Management was also told to punish union leaders, isolate troublesome employees and create internal conflict, all in the name of keeping a union-free shop.
The ITUC says that "Inhumane conditions are rife" and that Samsung employees are overworked and underpaid. Some have to stand for 11 to 12 hours at a time and suffer physical and verbal abuse.
It is pretty hard to determine whether or not this adversarial culture between Samsung management and employees directly lead to the problems involving the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 as the ITUC seems to believe. But Samsung executives might step back and take a hard look at the dynamics of the company.

NO EXCUSE! Samsung should still have them check every phone before it hits the shelf. And if thats the case of their workers being abused and and working in inhumane conditions, samsung has another problem on their hands.

Evil, Samsung is a Pure Evil Company. I have so sympathy for this kind of evil company. Now I'm glad that Note 7 causes so much trouble for this evil company. They totally deserves it.

Sorry, but given how Apple has had quite a few more suicides to the point of factories they used set up anti suicide nets....this seems an odd statement. But one (known) incident with Samsung and they are the worst, I think i am going to take your opinion with a grain or five of salt.

I dont think it was shifting the blame onto Apple, so much as also stating that Apple also has similar conditions. All in all it is a horrible situation these people have to go through, just to make a living.

Exactly. They're the link behind all those Foxconn suicides and that doesn't even speak to the concerns for which Apple products' high demand exposes the employees to such a strong concentration of the life-threatening chemicals used to make the touchscreen...

"So you see how your comment sounds ... dumb, as if written by a sheep." Well, that depends on your perspective - I mean, if a sheep has actually gained the cognitive abilities to construct sentences and type comments on an internet forum then frankly that's f**king incredible. That's a REALLY smart sheep. Just fashioning a method of web browsing and typing with hooves would be a major feat in itself, to actually understand the written English word and respond accordingly shows immense intelligence. Or perhaps you're just not as smart as you think by throwing your usual, predicable, boring, sheep comment in there - forgetting that recent weeks have shown us the worst of the Samsung sheep here, that the same behaviour is evident whichever camp the fanboys come from.

Samsung fanboys have excuses. Apple's contractor Foxconn do the same so it's OK for Samsung to do this $hit. I love Samsung and I'll die for samsung. I'll keep buying samsung products no matter what. Samsung is my life and I think of samsung as a part of me. This is all Apple's media's propaganda against my beloved. LUL.

At least it is apple contractor. And when they knew they did took some measures. but this is Samsung who is violating human rights directly. I guess this is final straw. Now need to find another manufacturer. Samsung WAS the best

Established media will soon backfired if they think spamming negative ads on Samsung will destroy Samsung. In reality they're making Samsung stronger. MSM readers are starting to angry. All the established media mums about ethical issue on Apple, and when Samsung done that whole world are crazy on it. The biasness will soon backfired and put Apple to danger instead. We already see this MSM backfiring coming from presidential election, beware

Blah blah blah.. Even the employees at the contract firm that makes Apple components suffer similarly.

That does not make things normal. What you're saying sounds like people should ignore it cause Foxconn has the same value among their employees. Come on man...when it was Apple:s time, we had our say. And if this is true, Samsung is in Seep Dhit too! There's no excuse taking advantage of the weak.

Coming from one of the biggest samboys here on PA I'm not surprised to see him deflecting the issues here. And the number of green thumbs he is getting also indicate the overall attitude of samsung fanboys on this matter. Shame on these losers. Instead of criticizing their company for their evil deed they are deflecting as if this is nothing. It's not like samesung is doing this for the first time, Samsung did the same thing to their semiconductor employees, working them like slave, forced in into working in unhealthy conditions as a result they are suffered from cancer. Yet they try to conceal the matter but ultimate give up when media found out about it. Losers.

Horrible, totally horrible. I thought this stuff mostly happens in Chinese factories. *cough* Foxconn *cough*

You are aware some components of Galaxy devices are made in China? Your lack of an education is showing.
