Foxconn confirmed overnight violence at its iPhone factory in China

Foxconn confirmed overnight “violence” at its iPhone factory in Zhengzhou, central China. The Taiwanese tech giant vowed to “avoid similar incidents” in the future, saying workers complained about wages and conditions at the factory.

However, the tech giant has denied housing new recruits with Covid-positive staff. It was previously reported that hundreds of workers at a major iPhone manufacturing plant in China clashed with security personnel. The clash came as tensions simmered after nearly a month under strict restrictions aimed at stemming the Covid outbreak.

Workers at the Foxconn factory came out of their dormitories and pushed the guards, according to videos widely shared on social media. Several workers also surrounded an occupied police car and began rocking the vehicle while shouting incoherently, sources reported.

The protest began overnight over unpaid wages and fears of the spread of infection, and several workers were injured in the demonstrations when riot police arrived at the scene to restore order, the report added. Isolated incidents of violence have occurred as many of the iPhone factory’s huge workforce of more than 200,000 have been thrown into isolation and forced to subsist on meager meals.
