After the decision of Maruti Suzuki to sack 500 permanent staffers from the Manesar plant, the workers have decided to go against the decision. The employees have even decided to boycott the scheduled restart of the plant on August 21, 2012.

The Maruti Udyog Kamgar Union, which is the worker’s body at the Gurgaon factory said that the company has been indifferent to its employees with this mass summary dismissal and demanded reinstatement of all the innocent workers sacked by the company. Kuldeep Jhangu the general secretary of the body said that they were not consulted on the issue and that the workers at the Manesar plant are their colleagues.
