Unhappy How trade unions drove away Apple from Chennai

How trade unions drove away Apple from Chennai



Hope Modi can fix this nonsense and make India a truly welcome destination for investment and manufacturing. He has already started by repealing some archaic Labor Laws. Now he should dismantle the tyranny of trade unions.

Quote:
CHENNAI: High-end iPhones and iPads might just have rolled off assembly lines in Sriperumbudur if a team that did a recce three years ago had been convinced that the business climate was conducive.

A combination of poor industrial relations, trade union activism and lack of political support for business enterprise forced Foxconn, the largest contract manufacturer for Apple, to locate its iPhone and iPad production in Brazil, cutting off the prospect of 80,000 direct jobs in the Chennai suburb.

"The 2007 launch of Apple's iPhone was a global hit. Foxconn was the contract manufacturer. In 2010-11, it did a preliminary study to make iPhones in India, but dropped the plan," an official involved in the early stage negotiations told TOI.

Foxconn, which entered India in 2006 to make phones and components for Nokia, instead set up a plant to supply Apple in Sao Paolo, Brazil, in 2011.

Re: How trade unions drove away Apple from Chennai

I think we should develop other centres like Jaipur,Chandigarh and Vizag for this

Vizag will improve anyway under Naidu

Trade Unionism is he second stage. There are protests for all large factories like the POSCO steel plant in Orissa. Fix that, get more Koreans and then Samsung could come. iPhone would have also been kicked then

Investors won't be very willing to put their money in Vizag now, at least for some years. Phailin, Hudhud coming in consecutive years are likely to divert investment away from that region on the east coast. Then there was the tsunami some years ago. Maybe Haldia, or the west coast.

It was in TN, Kerala and Sri Lanka this side of Bay of Bengal. the major devastation was in Thailand and Indonesia. There were a couple of deaths in Somalia too. Unlike the cyclone, the dmage was resticted to about half a KM near the coast.

Re: How trade unions drove away Apple from Chennai

First is Bihar
UP is the second Bihar
West Bengal is the third Bihar
Tamil Nadu is the fourth Bihar... will very soon take away the title of third Bihar from West Bengal.

aha.. but most of the structures in Japan is sort of earthquake tolerant, and the people have been trained for centuries about it.

My point is that the West coast is much more peaceful.
