An angry crowd hurled barricades and other objects at security personnel near a Foxconn facility in China following unrest among workers, video footage uploaded on a social media site on Thursday (November 24) and Wednesday (November 23) showed.
The videos matched scenes seen in file footage of the plant, but Reuters could not independently verify the content of the video.
Workers said on videos circulated on social media that they had been informed that Foxconn, which is a major maker of iPhones for Apple Inc, intended to delay bonus payments. Some workers also complained they were forced to share dormitories with colleagues who had tested positive for COVID-19.
The unrest comes at a time when China is logging record numbers of COVID-19 infections and grappling with more and more lockdowns that have fueled frustration among citizens across the country. But it has also exposed communication problems and a mistrust of Foxconn management among some staff.
