Maruti Workers sit-in strike enters 8th day

Defying the high court's orders, workers continued their sit-in strike on the premises of Maruti Suzuki India's Manesar plant for the eighth consecutive day on Friday, with production activities at a complete standstill.
The strike by workers at Suzuki Powertrain India Ltd (SPIL) in support of their colleagues at the Manesar plant has made the situation even more precarious for the Maruti Suzuki India management.

The company has decided to stop production at its main factory in Gurgaon on Friday and Saturday on account of a severe shortage of engines and transmissions due to the strike at SPIL.

Workers at Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt Ltd (SMIPL) have also resorted to a strike to press their colleagues' demands.
