CHENNAI (Reuters) -Apple supplier Foxconn’s plant near Chennai in India will stay shut for three more days, a senior government official said, extending a week-long closure following workers’ protests sparked by a food poisoning incident.
The plant is expected to start production with 1,000 workers on Dec. 30, according to the person close to the matter who was not authorised to speak with media and declined to be identified.
A separate government source had said last week that the plant was closed on Dec. 18 and was expected to remain shut until Dec. 26.
The gates of the factory, which is on the outskirts of the southern city of Chennai, were open on Monday morning and some vehicles were moving in and out but the area was mostly deserted.
