Workers are opposing the suspension of a union office bearer.
1,200 workers at Toyota’s Bidadi plant have gone on strike from November 9, 2020.
Toyota has stated in an internal circular to its dealers and suppliers that workers had gone on a ‘sit in strike’ opposing the disciplinary action taken against the union office bearers who had allegedly threatened and abused a manager of the company.
The company has termed this as an illegal strike and has declared a lockout with effect from November 10, 2020 till further notice. It is in talks with the relevant stakeholders to try and resolve the issue.
Further, Toyota has clarified in a statement that the person put under suspension is pending enquiry as per company rules and applicable laws.
