More than a thousand teachers and students at one private university in the city of Quanzhou, Fujian Province, went on strike from 16 to 19 March in protest against the exploitation of teachers.

Student Chen from the private Yang’en university said that the university administration does not care about the teachers, and everything is decided by the Council of the University. Therefore, all decisions are made in its favour to the detriment of teachers and the university. Teachers are often delayed salaries, the equipment is not updated for the students, although tuition fees are constantly rising.

The university administration has not extended the teachers contracts whose terms of contracts came to an end. Therefore, on March 16, many teachers went on strike in front of the administration building. Later, after learning about it, they were joined by students in solidarity.

For a detailed analysis of the true face of China’s “socialism with Chinese characteristics”, read the preview the latest very interesting book by the AUCPB entitled “Modern Day China”, written by Secretary of the Central Committee of the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks. The e-book can be purchased for £2.00.

There's your issue.

A private university in a non-NATO country is bound to have awful teacher treatment.

Interesting. I am a teacher at a private Chinese university and I face the same issues. However, here is the attitude is resignation. We just tolerate the conditions. There's been no talk of a strike or anything like that.

Edit: sorry for the necromancy!

The teachers are taking advantage of weaknesses of Party apparatchiks who became vulnerable to capitalist hegemony coming from the West. They have their own culture. They should not succumb to laissez faire capitalism where labour strikes can paralyze the economy. They are paid generously. They have their own high-rise apartment dwellings. They eat three or sometimes six times a day. Education and healthcare are free. Cities are teeming with passenger buses. What more do they want!!

Shorter working hours, longer vacations, better benefits, cheaper tuition (students always demand this), a more democratic management of the Union/University's bureaucracy, transparency, whatever: Standard labor struggles.
They're also intellectuals, so maybe they've got some political demands, like less repression/censorship (intellectuals usually want that), some social liberalization, greater input from the people on policy... You know the drill. I fail to see why workers and intellectuals shouldn't be able to demand stuff under socialist systems: Hell, they're allowed to demand stuff under regular capitalist systems.

Crushing trade unions and strikes just 'cause the system calls itself socialist is regressive, not progressive.

this is making the mistake of assuming that there's any socialism in china.
Soviet America is Free America!

Under communism, there is no freedom; you are not free to live in poverty, be homeless, to be without an education, to starve, or to be without a job

Setting up Subway and Apple shops in China are all part of the dictatorship of the proletariat, comrade.
