Two months after the Xbox workers incident!
Foxconn said the dispute has ended, after Factory employees said they would jump off building in protest about wages!
According to The Guardian, workers at a Factory owned by Foxconn, threatened to jump off the roof of a building in a protest about wages.
The protest happened in the central China city of Wuhan, and it involved 200 workers, just two months after another incident that involved 300 Foxconn Xbox workers, who also threatened Mass Suicide!
That's right, Apple and Foxconn reached an agreement in order to improve working conditions over there, just a month ago, but looks that didn't work well.A company spokesman said the dispute, which concerned workplace adjustments and involved new workers, had been settled. He said it was not a strike. The company employs 1.2 million workers in China.
"The dispute has already been settled after some negotiations involving the human resources and legal departments as well as the local government," the Taipei-based spokesman, Simon Tsing, said.
NEWS SOURCE: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012...?newsfeed=trueThe deal was agreed almost two years after a series of worker suicides at Foxconn plants focused attention on conditions at Chinese factories and sparked criticism that Apple's products were made by Chinese workers subjected to mistreatment.
On Tuesday Apple reported that its fiscal second-quarter net income almost doubled after a jump in iPhone sales, exceeding financial market expectations.
Tsing declined to say how many employees were involved in the latest dispute. He said no one had jumped off any building.
