Apple purveyor Biel Crystal Manufactory, is violating chinese workers' rights

Hong Kong rights group alleged in a report, Biel Crystal Manufactory Ltd, a Hong-Kong based company that makes screens for Apple Inc, is violating workers' rights at its Chinese factories.

The Students & Scholars Against Corporate Misbehaviour (SACOM) report said Biel Crystal, which makes iPhone screens, requires its employees to work 11-hour shifts, seven days a week, with only one day off each month. Employees are also often injured and not given reasonable compensation and have to sign blank contracts, the report said.

Apple said in a statement sent to Reuters in response to the SACOM report, "We insist that our suppliers provide safe working conditions, treat workers with dignity and respect, and use environmentally responsible manufacturing processes wherever Apple products are made".

Labour rights groups have in the past few years criticised the working conditions in at least two other Apple suppliers its main manufacturing partner Foxconn Group, which is the trading name of Taiwan's Hon Hai Precision Industry, and another Taiwanese firm, Pegatron Corp. Biel Crystal employs more than 60,000 workers, according to the company's website, and has two factories, one in Guangdong and the other in Shenzhen. It was not immediately clear how long Biel had been an Apple supplier.
