Nokia: 'Conditions better than report concluded'

Finland-based electronics giant refuted finding of a recent Finnwatch report. Conditions for Nokia's workers in India are better than the conclusions of the report suggest.
Doug Dawson, spokesperson for the Espoo-based mobile phone manufacturer, told Bloomberg: "As the report says, Nokia pays the highest wages in the area. The wage comparison also didn’t take into account benefits like occupational health, meals, day care and transportation."

Finnwatch called on the companies covered in the report - Nokia, Flextronics, Foxconn and Salcomp - to treat temporary and permanent workers equally. Furthermore, wages should be high enough for people to start a family.

Nokia cooperated in the preparation of the report, Mr Dawson continued.
