Karnataka Labour Minister Shivaram Hebbar told The Times of India that Wistron had contracted six subsidiary companies to hire 8,900 workers for its Kolar plant.

卡纳塔克邦劳工部长希瓦拉姆·赫巴尔告诉《印度时报》,纬创资通已与6家子公司签订合同,为其科拉尔工厂雇佣8900名工人。优德棋牌官方下载部长Jagadish Shettar表示,暴力事件是纬创、劳工子公司和员工之间沟通不畅造成的。

“What we hear is that the company had made payments to the labor contractors, who delayed payments to the employees. This is being verified,” he said.
