On Friday we’ve heard reports coming from New York advocacy group China Labor Watch that Foxconn workers in China were in strike. Reported reasons were varying from a. Apple asking people to work on holidays to b. alleged enforcement of tighter quality control. It looks like Foxconn is denying all strike-related repots.
Not only that but Foxconn said that production is on schedule in an important time to Apple, writes Reuters. The Taiwanese company’s statement included the following: “any reports that there has been an employee strike are inaccurate. [...] There has been no workplace stoppage in that facility or any other Foxconn facility and production has continued on schedule”. Furthermore, Foxconn claims that those workers who decided on their own to work on the National Holiday were paid three times their normal compensation, as per the requirements of the law.
