More than 400 migrant workers and building material suppliers rushed into Foxconn's premises in Beijing, asking for payment for deferred salaries and materials supplied.

It is reported in local media that the migrant workers and material suppliers first went to protest at Langfang Foxconn. After their protest there got no result, they went together to Beijing Foxconn which is located in the city's Yizhuang Development Zone, asking Foxconn to pay their salaries and invoices for materials. It is reported that they did not leave Foxconn Beijing until the local police came and intervened.

According to seven contractors who did work for Foxconn, due to irregularities in Foxconn's bidding and contract process, they had suffered losses estimated at CNY200 million, which had rendered them unable to pay their workers and the suppliers. However, the contractors denied organizing the protest by 400 people at Foxconn's premises.

A representative from Foxconn claimed to local media that Foxconn had paid all the construction fees to the seven contractors, but the latter did not pay their workers and the suppliers. The spokesperson stated that the contractors were hiring the migrant workers to make trouble for Foxconn.
