Maruti Suzuki has been witnessing chaotic times at its Manesar plant in the last month in the form of labor unrest. This widespread labor unrest has widely affected the production of various models. The company recently announced that it would continue with the production of the SX4 sedan at the Manesar plant despite of the ongoing unrest. In order to help boost production, the firm has taken up the assistance of various temporary workers and around 120 technicians escalating the work force to a total of about 1500. The firm managed to produce 725 units of the Swift with combined production at both the Manesar as well as Gurgaon facility.
Since the 29th of August, the workers at the Manesar plant have been on strike and seem to be in no mood for compromise. The unrest was sparked when the firm dismissed close to 950 workers who allegedly caused serious quality related problems. The management now demands the workers to sign a good conduct bond before reinstatement. Workers in the unrest are however not in favor of signing the good conduct bond which is at the moment not letting the manufacturing facility see good times. in the mean while, the firm has decided to commence the production of its SX4, A-Star and Swift models at the Manesar and Gurgaon plants.
