China Covid: Angry protests at world’s largest iPhone factory
Footage has emerged on Chinese social media that appears to show protesters clashing with police in hazmat suits at a factory in the Chinese city of Zhengzhou.
Some people appear to have been injured in the videos, which took place outside the world’s largest iPhone factory.
An employee who recently started at the factory said the ZooHouseNews workers were protesting because Foxconn had “changed the promised contract”.
Manufacturer Foxconn said it would work with employees and local government to prevent further violence.
In its statement, the company said that some workers had doubts about the pay, but that the company would pay on the basis of contracts.
It also described as “manifestly untrue” rumors that new recruits were asked to share dormitories with workers who were Covid positive.
