Apple Tim Cook China
March 30, 2012 by staff
Apple Tim Cook China, Apple has agreed to work with controversial Chinese supplier Foxconn to tackle wage and working condition violations at the factories that produce its popular products. An inspection of three Foxconn plants found ‘serious and pressing’ concerns, in a landmark development for the way Western companies do business in China.
Foxconn – which makes Apple devices from the iPhone to the iPad – will hire tens of thousands of new workers, clamp down on illegal overtime, improve safety protocols and upgrade worker housing and other amenities. The moves come in response to one of the largest investigations ever conducted of a U.S. company’s operations abroad. Apple had agreed to the probe by the independent Fair Labor Association in response to a crescendo of criticism that its products were built on the backs of mistreated Chinese workers.
The association, in disclosing its findings from a survey of three Foxconn plants and over 35,000 workers, said it had unearthed multiple violations of labor law, including extreme hours and unpaid overtime. Apple, the world’s most valuable corporation, and Foxconn, China’s biggest private-sector employer and Apple’s main contract manufacturer, are so dominant in the global technology industry that their newly forged accord will likely have a substantial ripple effect across the sector.
