Hundreds Of Workers Laid Out At Hipad Without Notice Went On Rampage

After 200 workers came to Hipad for daily work but were asked to leave, they turned angry and damaged the facility.

Noida, on Thursday, hundreds of employees in a China’s smartphone manufacturer turned violent after the manufacturer laid out about 200 workers “without notice”, said officials. At Hipad Technology India, which produces phones for Oppo and Xiaomi, about 1,200 angry workers threw stones at the building, pushing the machines in Sector 63.

As recalled by a security guard, at 8 a.m., employees who work in morning shifts came to start their work, but within two hours the breakout began. After the rampage, a crowd of workers stood outside the main building, throwing phones and gadgets which are produced there.

Yet, there were no official comments from the company about the incident until the report came to police.

The police force and high-profile officers, including Sudha Singh – Superintendent of Police, Noida City, reached the site.

According to Singh, at about 10 a.m., people reported the breakout at Hipad to police, who then immediately showed up. The incident was under Phase 3 in police station limits.

Singh said that even when police were investigating the outrage, Hipad did not file any official claim until the afternoon. However, the investigation involved three or four people kept so that police can question them over their violent behavior.

A source from the company told that it notified the workers’ contractor about the layout. Furthermore, the contract’s conditions and terms indicated clearly that the company doesn’t have to announce when it wants to reduce the workforce.

There seems to be a miscommunication from the company, said officials of the Labor Department.

Harish Chandra Singh, Assistant Labor Commissioner, stated that the workers came to work perhaps because the vendor did not speak to them. When the company asked them to leave, they said no one informed them of the decision or the layout. That’s why they got so mad.

However, the contractor hasn’t presented to clarify this miscommunication.

Singh said the company had plans to train these 200 employees at a nearby firm, but that wouldn’t take place at once, so it told the vendor about this.
