Foxconn workers go on strike

Written by Nick Farrell



For two hours at least


Foxconn has confirmed that its workers at its Zhengzhou factory in China actually held a two-hour strike. According to Chinese news agency Securities Times 300 to 400 employees were involved in a strike last Friday.

Foxconn said that the dispute was solved after two hours with no impact to the Zhengzhou factory's production. Labour unions are communicating with the protesters and the case was considered closed. According to one worker the strike was to protest against the company's neglect of employees' needs and the high-pressure work environment. The strike ended peacefully, the employee added.

China Labor Watch said Foxconn forced its employees to work during the holidays and "raised overly strict demands on product quality without providing worker training for the corresponding skills".

In September, a riot broke out at Foxconn's Taiyuan facilities which was said to be caused by thousands of workers fighting against Foxconn security and armed police. This strike apparently was peaceful.
