Nokia Says Chennai Plant Conditions Better Than Report Concludes

Nokia Oyj, the world’s largest mobile-phone maker by units, said workers at its factory in Chennai, India, are better off than concluded in a report by human-rights organizations.

“As the report says, Nokia pays the highest wages in the area,” Doug Dawson, a spokesman for the Espoo, Finland-based manufacturer, said today in an interview. “The wage comparison also didn’t take into account benefits like occupational health, meals, day care and transportation.”
