APPLE’s iPhone partner Foxconn yesterday apologized for a pay-related “technical error” when hiring new staff at the Covid-battered Zhengzhou plan.
Protests erupted this week across the world’s biggest iPhone factory, with videos circulating on social media of workers taking action against strict lockdown measures and pay issues.
Foxconn said in a statement yesterday: “Our team has been looking into the matter and discovered a technical error occurred during the onboarding process”.
The firm apologized and said “actual pay” was guaranteed.
Analysts reckon the Zhengzhou plant makes around 60 per cent of all iPhone models.
Foxconn has seen unrest since October when some quarantine measures were re-introduced in the region, sparking a mass worker exodus, and staff members fleeing the region.
