Foxconn, An Apple Supplier, Apologises For A Hiring Blunder At China Plant: Foxconn, Apple’s main supplier, said on Thursday that a “technical error” occurred when hiring new recruits at a COVID-affected iPhone factory in China, and it apologised to workers after the company was rocked by new labour unrest.
Workers stated in social media videos that they were informed by Foxconn that bonus payments would be delayed. Some employees also complained about being forced to share dormitories with coworkers who tested positive for COVID.
“Our team has been investigating the matter and discovered a technical error occurred during the onboarding process,” Foxconn said in a statement, referring to the process of hiring new employees. “We apologise for an input error in the computer system and guarantee that the actual pay is the same as agreed upon and advertised in the official recruitment posters.”
The largest protests had subsided by Thursday, and the company was communicating with employees involved in smaller protests, according to a Foxconn source familiar with the situation.
