Foxconn denies strike at China iPhone plant

Foxconn Technology Group, the world’s largest contract electronics manufacturer which assembles products for Apple, on Saturday denied reports that some 4,000 workers had gone on strike at a plant in central China.

“There is no so-called strike,” Foxconn spokesman Simon Hsing told dpa.

A dispute that broke out on Friday between the production and quality teams at the Zhengzhou facility had been resolved, he said.

A US-based labour advocacy group said on Saturday that some 3,000-4,000 workers at the factory which assemble Apple’s iPhone 5 had gone on strike over quality standards and holiday demands.

China Labor Watch also claimed that quality control inspectors had been beaten by workers for Taiwan-based Foxconn.
