BBC Reports Trouble at iPhone Factory in India
Indian police have arrested more than 100 workers who went on a rampage over claims of unpaid wages at a Taiwanese-run iPhone factory near Bangalore.
Footage on social media showed smashed CCTV cameras and glass panels, broken lights and a car set on fire at Wistron Infocomm’s manufacturing facility.
The workers claim that they have not been fully paid for four months and are being forced to do extra shifts.
Wistron said that it “pledged to follow local labour (laws)”.
In a statement to the AFP news agency, the company did not refer directly to the workers’ complaints but said that “the incident was caused by people of unknown identities from outside who intruded into and damaged its facility with unclear intentions”.
It said it would resume operations as soon as possible
