Wistron Corp. Apple’s manufacturing partner in Bangalore has confirmed that it will restart its factory operations very soon. Due to a violent protest by factory workers, the manufacturing facilities shut shop last December. Apple then appointed several independent auditors who were put in charge to fix the system and come up with new policies so that this riot does not happen again.
India is known to have high-level politics involved in its manufacturing sector with influence from politicians and government.
Apple had suspended new orders to the company in December, but now operations will soon resume. Workers will undergo a training programme and will be taught on how to raise concerns. There are strong union issues in India, which will make it hard for Apple unless they have a strong human resources team who can deal with politicians along with the company management.
