Production normal today; strike 'total failure': HMIL

Posted on Nov 05, 07:39PM | UNI

Carmaker Hyundai Motor India Ltd (HMIL) has said the production at its plants continued to be normal today and termed the strike as 'total failure'.

"Production on Monday continued to be normal underscoring the total failure of the illegal disruption of work by the minority CITU affiliated union," HMIL said in a statement issued here this evening.

Employees affiliated to the CITU-backed trade union at HMIL are on strike from the second shift since last week at the company's plant in Sriperumbudur near Chennai.

HMIL said the absenteeism percentage of employees fell by 5 per cent today.

It said external leaders instigated the workers against the company and encouraged them to violate the terms of the court injunction prohibiting any kind of strike or demonstration within the plant or 100 meters radius of the plant.

The company reaffirmed its stance of not recognising a minority politically backed union and will adhere to the terms of the unanimous tripartite settlement arrived at on December 8, 2010.

Hyundai Motor India Employees Union is demanding the HMIL management reinstate 27 suspended employees, negotiate a wage agreement with HMIEU and recognise it.
