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.
