Mii de angajati Foxconn au intrat in greva din cauza conditiilor stricte privind calitatea pe care trebuie sa o aiba terminalele iPhone 5


  In ultimele saptamani de zile multe persoane s-au plans din cauza unor probleme ale terminalului iPhone 5, cei de la Apple au urmarit cu atentie totul si le-au impus partenerilor norme mult mai stricte in ceea ce priveste verificarea calitatii terminalelor scoase de pe liniile de productie. Apple a impus reguli foarte stricte in ceea ce priveste manipularea componentelor terminalelor iPhone 5, astfel incat acestea sa nu se zgarie in timpul procesului de productie, insa reguli stricte au fost impuse si in ceea ce priveste asamblarea restului partilor terminalului iPhone 5. Angajatii se plang din cauza faptului ca nu sunt antrenati pentru a indeplini anumite task-uri, conducerea nu face sesiuni de training, iar iPhone-urile scoase de pe linia de productie nu indeplinesc standardele de calitate si angajatii platesc pentru ele.

(New York) China Labor Watch (CLW) announced that at 1:00PM on October 5 (Beijing time), a strike occurred at Foxconn’s Zhengzhou factory that, according to workers, involved three to four thousand production workers. In addition to demanding that workers work during the holiday, Foxconn raised overly strict demands on product quality without providing worker training for the corresponding skills. This led to workers turning out products that did not meet standards and ultimately put a tremendous amount of pressure on workers. Additionally, quality control inspectors fell into to conflicts with workers and were beat up multiple times by workers. Factory management turned a deaf ear to complaints about these conflicts and took no corrective measures. The result of both of these circumstances was a widespread work stoppage on the factory floor among workers and inspectors.

  Totusi, nu doar angajatii au fost afectati de aceasta problema, inspectorii care verifica daca iPhone-urile produse respecta standardele de calitate, au fost atacati de catre angajati in repetate randuri si au decis sa intre in greva dupa ce membrii conducerii Foxconn nu au dorit sa rezolve problemele. Practic mai multe cladiri ale unei fabrici Foxconn din China au oprit productia in timpul zilei de ieri, angajatii si inspectorii intrand in greva si blocand liniile de productie ale terminalelor iPhone 5. Incidentele care au avut loc in ultimele zile intre angajati si inspectori au stat la baza acestui protest spontan si deocamdata se pare ca problema nu a fost rezolvata.

That quality control inspectors would also strike is of no surprise. According to workers, there was a fight between workers and quality control inspectors in area K that led to the damage in inspection room CA, the injury of some people, and the hospitalization of others. After this, another similar incident occurred in area K, once again leading to quality control inspectors getting beat up. Yesterday, inspectors in area L received physical threats. When inspectors reported these issues to factory management, the management simply ignored and turned their back on the issue. For these reasons, all day and night shift inspectors carried out a work stoppage today that paralyzed the production lines.

  Pentru Apple e normal sa ceara un control mai atent al terminalelor fabricate de catre angajatii Foxconn, pentru cei de la Foxconn problema este complicata deoarece multi dintre anagajati nu sunt indeajuns de experimentati pentru a isi indeplini job-ul, iar in final se ajunge la proteste. Probabil in lunile urmatoare vor avea loc alte proteste, iar Apple nu va reusi sa acopere cererea de pe piata din cauza faptului ca sute de terminale iPhone 5 nu sunt produse zilnic la Foxconn.

  Partea buna pentru noi este ca viitoarele loturi de terminale iPhone 5 vor avea toate problemele rezolvate.
