In September 2010, Cividep (India) published a report raising concerns about working conditions in mobile phone manufacturing plants at the Nokia campus of the Telecom Special Economic Zone in Sriperumbudur, near Chennai, drawing on interviews with workers at Nokia’s assembly plant and at six of Nokia’s suppliers based there: Flextronics, Foxconn, Laird, Perlos, Salcomp and Wintek. The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited the following companies whose practices were most criticised in the report to respond: Nokia, Foxconn, Laird, and Wintek. These company responses and non-responses are now published on the website of the Business & Human Rights Resource Centre. The findings appear in the “Employment, Workers, and Labour Standards” section of the report (pp 22-30).
