Maruti rolls out 150 cars from Manesar, stand-off continues

Maruti Suzuki rolled out 150 cars on Saturday, recruiting another batch of 125 ITI-trained workers, even as labour unrest in the plant continued. The fresh recruitment takes the current strength of people available for production to 800. On Friday, the company had produced 125 cars from Manesar Plant A and B.

“The company will continue to scout for more trained workers in the coming days,” a company official said.

Production had come to a halt on Monday morning after the company suspended and dismissed 21 employees on charges of sabotaging and alleged quality issues. It enforced a ‘good conduct bond’ on the workers as a condition to enter the factory.

To express solidarity with the protesting workers, close to 80 post-graduate and research scholars of Jawaharlal Nehru University and Jamia Milia Islamia visited the troubled plant on Saturday.
