Police were called in after at least 1,000 Foxconn employees started a riot at a company factory in Southwest China.
The Want China Times reported a riot took place at a Foxconn factory in Chegndu, China. Dozens of arrests were apparently made following the uprising.
Foxconn's insurgence comes following allegations of poor working conditions at the company's facilities.
Reports say Foxconn security guards were trying to apprehend a thief when a group of factory workers with grudges against the guards stepped in. Workers reportedly forced the guards away from the burglar in an attempt to prevent his capture as the riot slowly began to grow.
The event began to escalate as some 1,000 workers allegedly joined the affray. Rioters reportedly began throwing trash cans, pots, and bottles before police were finally able to quell the riot.
Working conditions at Foxconn factories have gained bad marks over the past couple of years. In 2010 at least 10 Foxconn workers were reported to have committed suicide because of stressful working conditions. A factory explosion also killed two workers that same year.
Foxconn vowed to clean up its act following a factory audit this March.
"Our employees are our greatest asset and we are fully committed to ensuring that they have a safe, satisfactory and healthy working environment," Foxconn said in March.
Foxconn is a large scale Chinese manufacturer who builds products for the likes of Apple and Microsoft. Their factories are used to make products like the iPhone, iPad, and Xbox 360.
Foxconn was not available for comment at the time of this report.
