The Tiawanese electronics giant who manufactures Apple products in China, denies a reports that the factories are being cripled by strikes.
The report issued by China Labor Watch, a New-York advocacy group, came just a couple weeks after the launch of the iPhone 5, Apple's largest ever global rollout of a device. Apple is already having issue trying to fill the orders for the phone as the supply chain is struggling to meet the demand.
The report stated that several thousand workers were on strike at Foxconn's Zhenghou complex in central China Friday afternoon. Workers were angered by over-zealous quality control and work demands through a national holiday week which started on Monday.
But Foxconn's central office denied the report and said the plant only suffered two small disputes days earlier.
"Any reports that there has been an employee strike are inaccurate," the company said in an emailed statement, adding that "there has been no workplace stoppage in that facility or any other Foxconn facility and production has continued on schedule."
Tensions have been boiling over the last several weeks at factories owned by Foxconn, the tech giant that manufatures iPads and iPhones for Apple and employs over a million people.
Apple and Foxconn have received strong criticism for poor working conditions and wages at plants across China.
In response, they have organized an audit of factory conditions, raised wages, improved safety and reduced overtime, among other measures.
Apple's chief executive officer Tim Cook visited Foxconn's vast complex on the far outskirts of Zhengzhou in late March.
