PORTAL - On the afternoon of August 10, the provincial leadership delegation led by Mr. Nguyen Van Loi - Member of the Party Central Committee, Secretary of the Provincial Party Committee, Head of the Provincial Steering Committee for Covid-19 Prevention and Control, visited the production situation at Saigon Stec Co., Ltd (Vietnam - Singapore II Industrial Park, Hoa Phu Ward, Thu Dau Mot City).
Reporting to the Delegation, Mr. Do Quang Tung - Head of Human Resources Management Department of Saigon Stec Co., Ltd. said that the company has 100% Japanese capital with more than 6,000 workers. The company implemented "3 on the spot" and "1 road, 2 locations" from July 19. However, on July 22, the company had a case of F0, so it had to stop production of all workshops until August 09. From August 10, the Company officially resumed operations under the "3 on the spot" and "1 road, 2 locations" plans with more than 3,000 production workers. The company strictly implements pandemic prevention and control measures such as dividing work shifts, testing and screening, making use of the company's workshops and garage to serve as accommodation for workers.
However, current difficulties and obstacles are medical costs, accommodation costs of "1 road, 2 locations" and "3 on the spot" plans which greatly affect the project costs of the enterprise, not to mention to the costs of salary paid to employees who do not agree to work according to the above plans and other employees waiting for work during the time the company is locked down. Vaccination for employees has not been carried out, so they do not feel secure to work. Due to the shortage of human resources, the factory had to reduce its operating capacity, making the orders signed with partners unable to be completed on schedule, leading to great losses for the Company.
