Didi and JD.com are letting their workers unionize
Two of China's leading tech companies are setting up labor unions for their staff as the industry comes under intense political pressure to rethink how it treats its workers.
Chinese ride-hailing company Didi announced on an internal forum last month that it had established a union for its workers, according to a person familiar with the matter.
The person said that the group was affiliated with the All China Federation of Trade Unions, a government-backed organization under which all Chinese mainland trade unions must be registered.
This week, JD.com also created a union for employees, the e-commerce company said in a Chinese social media post.
