China has no plans to water down a new law that aims to protect workers, the country's only legal trade union warned. Voting on a new labor law is expected this month after the government received 200,000 public comments, some suggestig it is too strict and may push some foreign businesses to relocate, state media reported. Xie Liangmin, a senior official with the law department at the All-China Federation of Trade Unions, said the law would protect workers' rights. "We'll never submit to any pressure in protecting Chinese workers rights and interests," Xie said. "We welcome foreign companies that respect Chinese laws and look after their workers. Those relying on cheap labor and making profits by violating workers' rights will finally be ousted." The draft of the new law requires employers to submit changes in pay, hours, insurance, safety, holidays and training to the workers' representatives. It also gives unions the power to negotiate collective contracts.
