Hyundai says production on schedule
Hyundai Motor India Limited (HMIL) today said the production at its two plants at Sriperumbudur near here continued to be on schedule as the number of workers who abstained from work dropped significantly since the production disruption on October 30.
In a release here, it said the number of workers who abstained from work dropped to 110 from 150 today.
HMIL had already recognised United Union of Hyundai Employees (UUHE) as the official union who have a majority membership of over 1300 permanent workers amongst a total strength of 2007. They have signed a historic wage agreement with UUHE on October 18 and the company is categorical that it will not recognise any other union.
Further, 400 employees who are not members of UUHE have signed and accepted the wage settlement, it claimed.
Hyundai Motor India Employees Union (HMIE) is demanding that the HMIL management reinstate 27 suspended employees, negotiate a wage agreement with HMIEU and recognise HMIEU.
HMIL, however, said it recognised UUHE as the official union.
