Two Zhuhai cartridge manufacturers cited for labour rights violations

December 17, 2021

After an undercover investigation, China Labour Watch cited two Zhuhai-based cartridge manufacturers for an alarming number of labour rights violations.

The labour rights organisation recently released the report “Abuse in the Printing Supply Chain: An Investigation into Two Cartridge Manufacturers.” The report exposed illegal and abusive labour practices in two printer cartridge manufacturers.

The organisations’ weeks-long undercover investigation at Zhuhai National Resources & Jingjie Printing Technology and Zhuhai Maetone Infotech included interviews with 86 workers. The investigation found that conditions “violated Chinese Law” and included “denying workers paid leave.” Other violations included “violating overtime limits, issuing false pay checks, failing to purchase social insurance, issuing late and incomplete labour contracts, and failing to provide workplace safety training.” 

The report also found that “Zhuhai Maetone Infotech’s factory conditions are unsafe and hazardous with the urgent risk of death and injury from combustible dust explosions.”

China Labour Watch commented: “The report seeks to increase supply chain transparency for consumers and to encourage Chinese authorities, online marketplaces, and Zhuhai National Resources & Jingjie Printing Technology and Zhuhai Maetone Infotech to improve conditions for workers.”

You can read the full report here.

The Recycler has contacted both companies for comment.
