Maruti Suzukis Manesar Plant Workers On Strike Again (19-Jul-2012)
The country's largest passenger carmaker, Maruti Suzuki's Manesar plant workers are on strike again on wage settlement issue that resulted in a scuffle between workers and plant management. The work at the plant has been completely stopped from 7 p.m. on July 18, 2012 with all the 3,000 workers going on strike.
One worker has been suspended after an argument with the management. It has been alleged some company officials were abusive, which led to a fight. Following this, all workers went on a strike in the second half of the day. The workers burnt a few cars parked outside the factory and workers union has demanded immediate revocation of the suspension order.
The previous strike, in June 2011, which lasted for 59 days had resulted in production loss of about 80,000 cars and the direct revenue losses were pegged at 2,500 crore in the last fiscal year.
