Striking workers returned to jobs as the Hyundai Motor India Limited revoked suspension of 20 workers pending investigation and enquiry proceedings. The strike was initiated by members of Hyundai Motor India Employees union on the 30th of October 2012. There were five of the 20 workers who were found guilty and will face a domestic enquiry.

In the presence of Labor Commissioner B. Chandra Mohan a wage settlement agreement and an agreement recognizing united Union of Hyundai Employees were signed and agreed upon. Through dialogue and with the intention of not causing a fiasco as seen at the Maruti Manesar plant, workers were asked to resume work and not indulge in activities which would be detrimental for growth of the company. No- work, no- pay policies would be considered for those who abstained from duty during these days.

HMIL sources said that the company recognizes only one union and wouldn’t tolerate agitation by workers based on sayings of other unions. It also made its self very clear by saying that the agreement was accepted in order to ensure that there was no labor unrest in the manufacturing unit.
