Labor Relations and Dialogue

FENC ensures harmonious labor relations with robust communication channels.

The Company keeps ongoing dialogues with staff through multiple channels to build consensus and optimize employee performance. From time to time, we conduct employee satisfaction survey and gain insights into trends in the labor market and employees’ needs with the help of outside consultants.
Pursuant to FENC Human Rights Policy, the Company holds regular labor relation meetings each year with minutes made public. Major policy decisions are made after thorough discussions are conducted between departmental managers and the labor union to ensure labor rights. Staff may express their opinions to the management through internal channels, including comment box and executive meetings. We are adamant about developing rapport with employees and avoid labor disputes. During the reporting period, there were no violations of freedom of assembly or collective bargaining agreement.

Regulation Governing Layoff Notice Period

FENC has established 15 formal labor unions at the production sites. Other than U.S. locations, union membership is extended to all permanent employees except for executives who make policy decisions for the employers. For production and business sites in the U.S., all employees must join the labor union at the end of the probation period, and hiring of non-union members is prohibited. There are 4 production and business sites do not have formal labor unions, but the relationship between labor and management is harmonious. Labor and management meetings are convened quarterly and meeting minutes are published.
