Hyundai Tamil Nadu plants: Production on schedule
Hyundai Motor India Limited (HMIL), the largest passenger car exporter and the second largest car manufacturer in India, said that production at its two plants at Sriperambadur near Chennai continued to be on schedule even as the number of workers who abstained from work dropped significantly on the fourth day since the illegal disruption of production on Tuesday.
The number of workers who abstained from work dropped to 110 from 150 on Saturday, said an official statement.
On Saturday, the company was scheduled to produce a record 2340 cars, up from 2176 cars produced on Thursday and Friday respectively.
HMIL has already recognized 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 permanent workers.
They have signed a historic wage agreement with UUHE on Oct 18 and the company is categorical that it will not recognize any other union.
Further 400 employees who are not members of UUHE have signed and accepted the wage settlement.
