Maruti stalemate continues

  • The strike by workers at Suzuki Powertrain India Ltd (SPIL) and Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt Ltd in support of their colleagues at Maruti’s Manesar plant also continued.
    “The Manesar plant remains captive in the hands of workers. There is no production possible there. Due to the impact of components from SPIL, production at Gurgaon will be even lower compared to yesterday,” a Maruti Suzuki India spokesperson said.
    The company earlier said the Gurgaon plant produced around 1,800 vehicles, as against the normal 2,800 units a day.
    SPIL supplies engines and transmissions to MSI’s Manesar and Gurgaon plants for different car models.
    The MSI management claims workers have indulged in random acts of violence like beating up company managers, supervisors and those co-workers that are not supporting the strike, the statement alleged.
    “They have also damaged equipment and property. In the situation, production remains at a standstill at the plant,” it added.
    Workers at MSI’s Manesar plant went on a stay-in strike in the afternoon on Friday (October 7), affecting production.
    The total number of workers who went on a stay-in strike inside the Manesar plant was around 2,000. This included all categories of workers, like regular and contractual employees, apprentices and trainees.
    On Sunday, MSI dismissed 10 workers, terminated five trainees and suspended 10 employees in connection “with the strike and violence at the Manesar factory premises“.
    Shares of MSI were being quoted at Rs. 1,077.55 per share on the BSE in morning trade on Monday, up 0.41 per cent from their previous close.
