Strike at Maruti’s Manesar plant enters 13th day

NEW DELHI: Workers at the country’s largest car-maker Maruti Suzuki India’s Manesar plant continued their strike for the 13th day today after negotiations with the company management broke down yesterday.

Workers at Suzuki Powertrain India (SPIL) and Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt Ltd (SMIPL) had also gone on strike from October 7 in support of their colleagues at Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) and are continuing their stir.

“The situation remains the same as yesterday. The strike is continuing, but we will continue partial production at the plant,” a company spokesperson told PTI.

Meanwhile, shares of the company were trading 0.52% up at Rs 1,058 apiece in the morning on the BSE.

Yesterday, talks between the management and striking workers at the Manesar plant of MSI, brokered by the Haryana government, broke down. Officials of the Haryana Labour Department held talks with workers of MSI as well as those of SPIL and their respective managements.

While the company alleged its workers were maintaining an adamant attitude, the workers denied taking a rigid stand and blamed the management for adopting pressure tactics to end the stir.

The company claimed to have rolled out 350 cars from the Manesar plant yesterday, the first time since October 7, when the labourers struck work. MSI’s Gurgaon plant also manufactured 1,750 vehicles.
