班加罗尔：据Sandeep Moudgal报道，纬创在提交给警方和劳工部的起诉书中称，星期六纬创位于戈拉尔的iPhone组装工厂发生的暴 力事件估计已造成43.7亿卢比的损失。
The losses are primarily due to the theft of thousands of iPhones, allegedly loed from the unit during the violence, and dge caused to Wistron’s assembly line and factory equipment, the compnt said. Condemning the two-hour violence, Karnataka labour minister Shivaram Hebbar said the dges caused to the company were unacceptable.
纬创在起诉书中称，亏损主要是由于数千部iPhone被抢，以及装配线和工厂设备被破坏。据称，这些iPhone是在暴 力事件中被抢走的。行为持续两个小时，卡纳塔克邦劳工部长Shivaram Hebbar表示谴责，称这对企业造成的损失是不可接受的。
According to the go nment, the dispute between Wistron and the contract labourers has been going on for three months. Hebbar said Wistron had contracted six subsidiary companies to hire 8,900 people for its Kolar unit.
“Besides, the company had 1,200 permanent employees,” he added. Industries minister Jagadish Shettar said the violence was, perhaps, fueled by miscommunication between Wistron, the contractors and the employees.
他补充说：“此外，该公司有1200名正式员工。”工业部长Jagadish Shettar说，暴 力事件可能是纬创、劳务派遣公司和雇员之间沟通不畅导致的。
“What we hear is that the company had made payments to the labour contractors, who delayed payments to the employees. This is being verified,” he said. Hebbar said the labour department has issued notices to Wistron, asking the firm to pay the dues in three days.

Now Apple would have been thinking that was better than India in terms of Industrial security. We idiot Indians will dig our own grave one day.
What was the police doing when this loot was going on,? Incidents like these will seriously dent India's image among international investors about India being a safe place for their investments....
I think we should wacth-out for such similar in dents in companies that have moved their manufacturing from to India.
As per this post it's clear that winstron paid the money to contractors who in turn didn't pay to its labourers in time. Where is the fault of winstron? Again these fraud contractors are also typical Indian scammers. Foreign companies still coming to India surprises me a lot.
All these are sponcered strikes. They don't want their units from to get shifted to India
How can such in dent can occur with in just 2 hours of prest. So either this was planned loot along with internal involvement or something else to cm dge. This needs to be investigated.
such violence will prevent Foreign companies coming to India, once again will have upper hand. True Indian labour dig their own graves by violence, strikes, bandhs
We had a great oppurtunity to attract foreign companies to invest in Indian plants as they are planning to move away from . These type of in dents will make them rethink
this shows how stupid people are.... will they be allowed to work in plant anymore and get their payment on time... this will make foreign companies to think 100 times before building their manufacturing plants in India... so in total they are destroying the current and future..

What are we showing to the world ? We are not capable to providing security to the investors and their money.
This is really really shameful and shows why manufacturing can never succeed in India. Indians by nature are angry people who will restore to violence, rioting, vandalism and theivery at the drop of the hat. I feel so so bad for Winston. they trusted India and were in the end deceived.
The Enemy Within is very dangerous than Pakistan and included.
The culprits should be identified and punished ruthlessly. There are ways to sort out sry issues, violence is not the way. is looking for such in dents and mindless idiots are playing in there hands.
Seeing this other multinational companies will avoid coming to India.
It shows the contract workers are loers. Shameful.
Indians dont want to work. They just want to be rich watching cricket.
with such hooliganism, good luck to make India. we will never change.
Go India Go
Karnataka youths are very aggressive and lazy!
