Apple
says it is trying to address complaints by workers at the world’s largest iPhone factory in China who have been protesting about conditions, according to a statement seen by The Wall Street Journal.

Foxconn
(2354:Taiwan), based in Zhengzhou, produces 70% of global iPhone shipments and is one of the world’s largest electronics contractors.

The statement reportedly said
Apple
(ticker:AAPL) has staff at the Zhengzhou site and it is working closely with
Foxconn
to ensure their employees’ concerns are addressed.

Apple
and
Foxconn
didn’t reply to Barron’s requests for comment.

There have been problems at the site for some months largely linked to China’s strict Covid19 policies. Staff work in a loop system where they quarantine and then live on site for a period before then swapping with a new team.

There have been images on social media of hundreds of workers protesting. They are unhappy about shortages of food and medicines and the strict quarantine rules, according to multiple reports.
