Pegatron Says It Has Been Told of Apple’s Labor Inspections

Feb. 14 (Bloomberg) -- Pegatron Corp., a maker of Apple Inc.’s iPhones, said it has been informed of pending inspections of factory work conditions by a labor group.

Pegatron’s Shanghai factory was told about the coming inspection within the last two days and hasn’t been given a schedule for the visit, Charles Lin, chief financial officer of the Taipei-based company, said by telephone today. Earlier, Lin had said the company wasn’t informed about the inspections.

Apple said the Washington-based Fair Labor Association began checks of working conditions at supplier Foxconn Technology Group yesterday, about a month after the iPhone maker became the first technology company to join the association. Audits at Pegatron and Quanta Computer Inc. are scheduled to start this spring, Cupertino, California-based Apple said in a statement.

The labor association’s members include Nike Inc. and Nestle SA.

Carol Hsu, a spokeswoman for Taoyuan, Taiwan-based Quanta, a maker of iPods and notebooks for Apple, declined to comment.
