Tension at Honda plant as sacked workers protest
Tension gripped Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India (HMSI), IMT, Manesar, today as over 2,000 casual workers staged a demonstration against the termination of their services.
Many employees claimed they were removed from services and their dues were cleared forcibly. They said though the firm had been firing employees for quite some time, the situation aggravated today when 350 workers were told to leave.
Several rounds of meetings were held between officials and the employees' union in the presence of Deputy Labour Commissioner Ajay Pal Dudi but to no avail.
President of HMSI Workers' Union Suresh Gaur alleged the company management forcibly fired workers. The firm has so far not issued any statement on the situation.
