With terms far apart, no solution in sight for China's shoe factory strike in its 2nd week

Workers on strike at a Chinese factory owned by the world's largest maker of athletic shoes have rejected management's latest offer.

The ongoing labor dispute is crimping production of shoes for brands such as Nike and Adidas.

The on-off work stoppage at Yue Yuen Industrial (Holdings) Ltd.'s massive factory complex in southern China has stretched into the second week as both sides have failed to reach an agreement.

The dispute erupted over underpayments for social security and housing fund insurance required by Chinese law.

Workers and labor groups said tens of thousands of workers remained off the job Tuesday. Both sides appeared far from a deal.
