Toyota Kirloskar Motor ends lockout
Toyota Kirloskar Motor has withdrawn the lockout at its plants at Bidadi after the law and order situation improved at the plants.
The management had been forced to announce a second lock-out on November 23, 2020 as TKM Workers’ Union members continued with their strike.
However, the company had resumed production with about 1,200 team members who had expressed their intention to work.
After a recent meeting held between Ashwathnarayan, the deputy chief minister of the Karnataka, and the TKM management, the company decided to withdraw the lock-out.
Both the plants have commenced production in two shifts from Tuesday. Employees returning to work are being made to sign an undertaking of good conduct.
The suspension pending enquiry of 66 unionised employees for serious misconduct will continue and enquiries will be conducted, said a TKM spokesperson.
The company had first declared a lockout on November 10 after workers protested the suspension of an office bearer of the union.
The Competition Commission of India (CCI) is understood to have received a report from its investigation wing on complaints made against Maruti Suzuki.
The report said that Maruti Suzuki discouraged competition between dealers and it also sent decoy customers to see whether a dealer gave extra discount to customers.
