Trade bodies protest in support of Maruti workers

About a 100 protestors from various trade unions staged a demonstration outside Haryana Bhawan today, seeking the government's intervention for reversing the suspension and dismissal of workers by Maruti Suzuki. The trade bodies vowed to continue their protest till the management takes back all dismissed workers and revokes the suspension of others

New Delhi: Expressing solidarity with agitating Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) workers, about a 100 protesters from various trade unions staged a demonstration outside Haryana Bhawan today, seeking the government's intervention for reversing the suspension and dismissal of workers by MSI, reports PTI.

The development came after talks brokered by the Haryana government between the management and workers at MSI's Manesar plant failed to end the 25-day-long standoff.

Protesters from the Mazdoor Ekta Kendra, Mazdoor Ekta Committee, Centre for Struggling Workers Trade Union, Krantikari Yuva Sangathan, All-India Federation of Trade Unions and Inqualabi Mazdoor Kendra, among other bodies, condemned the dismissal and suspension of 62 workers by MSI so far.

"It is illegal to force the workers to sign a bond before entering the factory. It is the workers' democratic right to form a union and the management should recognise it as per the Indian laws," said Krantikari Yuva Sangathan convener Alok Kumar.

The trade bodies will continue to protest till the management takes back all dismissed workers and revokes the suspension of others, he said.

The deadlock has been continuing since 29th August, when the management prevented workers from entering the factory premises unless they signed a 'good conduct' bond, following alleged sabotage and deliberate compromise on the quality of cars being produced.

Meanwhile, the protesters have submitted a memorandum to Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda through the state resident commissioner, seeking his immediate intervention for restoring workers' rights and rescinding the decision for suspension and dismissal of workers by MSI.

As per information, MSI has dismissed 33 workers and suspended 29 so far.

Meanwhile, the New Trade Union Initiative (NTUI) has decided to hold protest demonstrations in front of Maruti Suzuki establishments in 12 locations across the country, including Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Mumbai, Nagpur, Assam, Chandigarh and Kochi.
