Focus shifts to India, more trouble for Foxconn

500 Foxconn workers have apparently been apprehended in India for attending strike action.
According to an action alert from Labourstart.org, hundreds of workers at Foxconn’s plant in Tamil Nadu have been arrested for attending a strike. The Taiwan-based EMS-provider currently employs around 7'500 staff at its manufacturing hub in Tamil Nadu. 1'400 of these are regular workers; the rest is made up of trainees, contract workers and others.

Workers joined a union affiliated with the Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU), demanding wages increases and the recognition of union rights, local media states (Evertiq reported earlier.). Demands for discussions were apparently not met by the management, prompting a strike. Around 500 workers were arrested, charged under non-bailable sections of the Criminal Proceeding Code of India, the reports continue.
