Students and Scholars Against Corporate Misbehavior (SACOM)

[Statement] Foxconn should keep its promise; we need no fake trade unions [China]

[Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited Foxconn to respond. Foxconn's response included] On 4 February 2013, Financial Times reported Foxconn (part of Hon Hai) would start trade union democratization in its Chinese factories with the assistance of Fair Labor Association... On 6 May, while answering enquiry from Securities Daily, a Chinese newspaper, about the trade union election, Foxconn spokesperson stated clearly that “union election is never on Foxconn’s agenda”…SACOM strongly urges Foxconn to: start genuine democratic trade union election immediately and should increase election transparency and allow the public to monitor the election method and procedure…implement true overtime work control and stop the game of words…offer workers living wage to sustain reasonable life quality of workers and their families…handle worker’s complaints and feedbacks seriously…abolish military-style management…practice occupational safety and health in workplace to secure workers production safety.
