In order to entice workers to the facility in the capital city of Zhengzhou, Foxconn Technology Group altered the terms of the wages that were being provided. Following a walkout by workers last month over concerns about unsafe working conditions, Foxconn is attempting to restore its staff.
Videos shared via social media show cops striking and clubbing employees during the Tuesday-to-Wednesday protest that broke out.
Putting the blame on a “technical glitch” within the process of hiring new staff, Foxconn—the largest contract manufacturer of smartphones or other devices for Apple or other major brands—promised to pay the workers what they were due.
A firm statement added, “We regret the computer input error and promise that the actual salary is like agreed or the official recruitment posters. “Try its best to effectively solve the issues and legitimate requests of employees,” it pledged.
Apple reported having personnel on the field at Foxconn’s Zhengzhou site late on Wednesday.
Authorities promised last month to reduce economic disruption by cutting quarantine times and making other changes to China’s “zero-COVID” strategy, which aims to isolate every case. Despite that, the infection surge has prompted authorities to suspend access to neighborhoods and factories and to close office buildings, shops, and restaurants in parts of many cities.
Daily mass testing was ordered for a “war of annihilation” against the virus.
Foxconn, headquartered in New Taipei City, Taiwan, earlier denied what it said were comments online that employees with the virus lived in factory dormitories.
