Maruti workers' strike at Manesar plant called off after 13 days

Manesar: The nearly two-week-long workers' strike at Maruti's Manesar plant was called off late on Thursday night.

The strike was called off after the Labour Minister said that no one can stop workers from registering their union with the management.

All the 11 sacked employees, who were fired for allegedly inciting others to go on strike, will also be reinstated but they will have to go through a chargesheet enquiry.

Around 2,000 workers at the Maruti Suzuki India's (MSI) plant had been on strike since June 4 demanding recognition of a new union - Maruti Suzuki Employees Union (MSEU) - formed by those working at the Manesar plant, among other things.

The Manesar plant rolls out about 1,200 units every day in two shifts. The factory produces hatchbacks Swift and A-Star and sedans DZiRE and SX4.
