NEW DELHI: After the Indian automobile sector was hit by global meltdown and lockout of Maruti's Manesar plant, Hyundai India has emerged as the recent auto major in India to be bearing the brunt of labour trouble.
Workers at Hyundai India’s Sriperumbudur facility are manufacturing vehicles at slower pace to display solidarity with the temporary workers that the auto major employed to handle the logistics functions.
The logistics workers at Hyundai India are striking work to press on 41 demand charter that they have given to the Hyundai management.
The strike has hit output partially and it has come at a time when car demand in India is rising with the Indian festive season slated to start in the upcoming few weeks. Any effect on output means bigger losses for the auto major, mainly models such as the Verna Fluidic and the i10 Fluidic, both have huge demand.
