Foxconn confirms labour disputes disrupt iPhone output

The assembler of Apple Inc. iPhones, Foxconn Technology Group had to stop production for the second time in as many weeks after factory-line workers at one of its plants protested against increased pressure, Bloomberg has reported. The employees, who work up to 12 hours a day, said the difficulties of meeting Apple's demands for quality and abuse from guards set off the latest incidents. Foxconn confirmed incidents occurred October 1 and October 2, and declined to comment on the events October 5. "These were isolated incidents and were immediately addressed and measures taken, including providing additional staff for the lines in question," the company said.
