A joint investigation found multiple labor violations at a Foxconn plant in China where Amazon devices are produced.
The watchdog group said that its investigation discovered that close to 40% of Foxconn workers at the location in question were temporary workers, which far exceeds the limit of 10% in China.
"They were underpaid", Reuters quoted Lu as saying. Dispatch workers didn't receive higher wages for overtime hours and were offered only unpaid sick leave, and were required to cover their own fees for a physical examination when starting work at the factory.
While the report focuses primarily on these dispatch workers, all factory workers are subjected to conditions the group claims are unacceptable: workers putting in over 100 hours of overtime in peak season with 14 consecutive working days, inadequate fire safety, lack of sufficient personal protective equipment (PPE), no labour union representation, and managers who subject them to 'verbal abuse'.
The report also found a disparity between how regular employees are treated and so-called dispatch - or temporary - workers.
"Amazon takes reported violations of our Supplier Code of Conduct extremely seriously".
Foxconn also responded, stating that salary reviews were conducted regularly and all full time as well as dispatch workers received pre-job training as well as additional training for their assigned departments. It added that regular audits were carried out "and if infractions are identified, we work to immediately rectify them".
