Foxconn asks for more time

Written by Nick Farrell



Can’t cut worker’s hours yet

Foxconn said it needs more time to reduce overtime at its China factories after labour monitors appointed by top client Apple admitted that cutting workers' hours by a July 1 target would be a challenge.

Apple asked the Fair Labour Association (FLA) to investigate working conditions at the plants after Foxconn came under fire for a series of suicides and accidents. The FLA said Foxconn had resolved 98 percent of the issued raised in the initial investigation, including cutting working hours and overtime, improving health and safety and increasing union participation.

But it faced the challenge of further cutting overtime hours to the standards set by Chinese law by the target date. The law stipulates a maximum of 40 working hours plus nine overtime hours a week.
