It was recently reported that Foxconn workers had gone on strike due to strict iPhone 5 quality measures from the Foxconn management. As a result, some 4,000 workers stopped working in an iPhone factory to register their protest. Now, Foxconn has denied the occurrence of any such incident and says that iPhone 5 productions lines are in full swing.


Foxconn workers

It had first been reported by China Labor Watch that the workers at Foxconn’s iPhone-producing factory were facing immense pressure over the quality of the device. After some Apple users complained about issues with the looks of the device, Apple apparently placed stricter quality control measures in place. And that lead to the disgruntlement of the workers.

Foxconn, on the other hand, is denying it all altogether. The company holds that there was no strike and that the production of iPhone 5 units continues unabated. Foxconn did admit that there were two minor incidents that took place in the factory between quality inspectors and workers. Yet, it claims, that these issues were resolved amicably and they didn’t lead to any further rancour among the workers.

It’s hard to discern the veracity of Foxconn’s claims, given the fact that the company simply can’t admit to have further troubles at its factories without attracting global ire. Logically, the best path would be for it to deny it altogether. However, there’s also the possibility of a minor incident being blown out of proportions. So either way, we will take the whole issue with a grain of salt.
