美国快餐连锁店肯德基星期三未能回应中国工会增加员工工资的要求。
中国东北辽宁省首府沈阳的一个代表第三个工人工会的律师在两个月前给百胜的沈阳分公司发了一封信。品牌管理公司中国分公司负责管理肯德基在沈阳的网点,要求工人工资的及时增加。
沈阳市服务业工会负责人冯慧说:“我们敦促公司澄清集体劳动合同草案中工人工资上涨的条款。”
冯军说:“但我们还没有收到公司的积极回应。

 
冯军说,工会要求肯德基在合同中规定工人的最低工资。
工会负责人说,公司有义务在收到律师函后10天内与工会就合同草案进行谈判。
李忠民,百胜公关经理!Brand Inc.在沈阳解释说,该公司需要向公司中国总部报告有关合同变更的事项,这引起了对这封信的迟延。
肯德基在改变劳动合同方面是谨慎的。但一旦合同签订,我们将履行我们的义务,”李克强说。
百胜!今年2月12日,在沈阳管理57家肯德基店和11家必胜客餐厅的Brand Inc.向工会提交了一份劳动合同草案。但工会认为该草案“对公司有利,对员工不公平”。
“我们建议该公司将最低工资定义为以本市服务业最低工资标准为基础,每月900元(合131.7美元)。但该公司坚称这是全市最低工资标准,每月700元,“冯说。
沈阳大学城一家肯德基出口店的一位姓张的员工说,那里的最低工资是每小时5.6元,低于城市每小时7.2元的最低工资。
联合统计显示百胜!沈阳的Brand Inc.拥有2000名员工。2007年至2009年间,公司利润增长了30%。

他说好吃!尽管沃尔玛的沈阳子公司同意在其2008个集体劳动合同中增加8%的工资,但品牌不愿像工会所建议的那样每年增加5%的工资。
“我们在过去两年向肯德基提出建议时提到了该市的总薪酬水平。”。沈阳工会联合会副主席王一庆说:“我们很难理解为什么公司仍然不愿意接受建议的薪资水平——即使对于沈阳来说,这已经很低了。”
王说,根据城市的规定,政府可以黑名单一家公司,未能保护工人的基本福利和罚款,它和它的法定代表人。
与此同时,百胜!品牌公司中国分公司星期二在上海标志着中国第三千肯德基出口的开放。

U.S. fast food chain KFC has failed to respond to a Chinese trade union’s demand to increase its employees’ salaries, the union’s chief said on Wednesday.
A lawyer representing the tertiary workers’ union in Shenyang, capital of northeast China’s Liaoning Province, sent a letter two months ago to the Shenyang branch of Yum! Brands Inc. China Division, which manages KFC outlets in Shenyang, demanding a timely increase in workers’ wages.
“We urged the company to clarify clauses regarding workers’ pay rises in the draft version of the collective labor contract,” said Feng Hui, head of the Shenyang Municipal Trade Union for Services Industries.
“But we’ve yet to receive a positive response from the company,” Feng said.
Feng said the union asked KFC to define workers’ minimum salary in the contract.
The company was obliged to negotiate with the union on the draft contract within ten days of receiving the lawyer’s letter, the union director said.
Li Zhongmin, a public relations manager with Yum! Brands Inc. in Shenyang, explained the company needed to report the matter regarding contract changes to the company’s China headquarters, which has caused a delay in responding to the letter.
“KFC is cautious in making changes to labor contracts. But once the contract is signed, we will fulfill our obligations,” Li said.
Yum! Brands Inc. in Shenyang, which manages 57 KFC outlets and 11 Pizza Hut restaurants, submitted a draft labor contract to the union on Feb. 12 this year. But the union regarded that draft as “favorable to the company and unfair to its employees.”
“We suggested the company define the minimum wage as based on the city’s minimum wage in the services sector, 900 yuan (131.7 U.S. dollars) per month. But the company insists it be the city’s general level of minimum wage, 700 yuan per month,” said Feng.
An employee surnamed Zhang at a KFC outlet in University Town in Shenyang said the minimum wage there was 5.6 yuan per hour, lower than the city’s minimum wage of 7.2 yuan per hour.
Union statistics show Yum! Brands Inc. in Shenyang has 2,000 employees on its payroll. The company’s profits rose 30 percent between 2007 and 2009.
“It is a shame the world’s largest restaurant company insists of the city’s minimum wage level,” said Feng, the union chief.
Duan Yang, a union worker, said the union in 2008 achieved a minimum annual salary of 18,509 yuan for restaurant workers. But many KFC workers only receive about 8,000 yuan a year.
He said Yum! Brands is reluctant to give an annual pay rise of 5 percent as the union has suggested, even after Walmart’s Shenyang subsidiary agreed to an 8-percent annual pay rise in its 2008 collective labor contract.
“We have referred to the city’s general salary levels over the past two years when giving suggestions to KFC. It is hard for us to understand why the company is still reluctant to accept the suggested salary level — which is already very low, even for Shenyang,” said Wang Yiqing, deputy chairman of the Shenyang Federation of Trade Unions.
Wang said according to the city’s regulations, the government can blacklist a company that fails to protect workers’ basic welfare and fine both it and its legal representative.
Meanwhile, Yum! Brands Inc. China Division in Shanghai Tuesday marked the opening of the 3,000th KFC outlet in China.
KFC entered China’s mainland market in 1987.
China is KFC’s second largest market after the United States.
