New Delhi/Manesar, Oct 15: Suzuki Power Train India Limited workers, agitating since the last few days in support of the labour force of Maruti Suzuki’s Manesar plant, have now been totally evicted without using any force.
‘The workers have moved out from the Power Train facility,’ a company official in the know of the development told IANS from Manesar.
The development came a day after workers at Maruti Suzuki’s Manesar facility were evicted. The workers had to move out of the factory premises after a directive by the Punjab and Haryana High Courts to do so.
‘We agreed to move out last night around 10.30 p.m. This decision was taken to follow the High Court’s order,’ Sonu Gujjar, one of the leaders of the workers who occupied the plant and went on a tool-down strike, told IANS.
‘Our strike will continue, our demands are legitimate and we will sit only 100 metres away from the plant as per the High Court’s directive,’ Gujjar added.
Workers at the Manesar plant went on strike on Oct 7 demanding the reinstatement of 44 suspended co-workers, who were not taken back after an earlier 33-day impasse with the management ended Oct 1.
After workers at the Manesar plant went on strike, labourers at Suzuki Powertrain India Limited (SPIL), which supplies diesel engines and transmissions to Maruti cars, halted production to express solidarity.
