The strike by workers at Maruti Suzuki's Manesar plant has been entered in seventh day with no sign of respite.
Unfortunately, Maruti wouldn't be able to reap the benefit of this festive season, which is the peak time to register a good number of sales.
The latest stand-off between the management and the workers is in support of the casual workers who were terminated by the company.
The company has reported that this is the third strike since June.
Workers are protesting since Friday with no rest. Company has arranged temporary food services to supply food to the workers inside.
The workers of Suzuki Powertrain are also on strike in support of Maruti.
Firstspot reported, “The number of permanent employees at the plant is 950. Barring the 44 who were suspended, that is 906 employees were admitted into the plant. The 1200 workers being referred to are contract workers and the agreement has nothing to do with them. But it was explicitly communicated at the time of the agreement that the contract workers would be taken back over the next couple of weeks. There was no confusion on this.”
While apart from labour unrest issues, the news reports say that Volkswagen may acquire Suzuki Motor's operations based out in Japan, which could be a plus point for the company to get its lost market pie.
