Toyota workers open to discussion to end wage dispute
Toyota India’s twin plants in Bidadi near Bangalore have been in the throes of a dispute between management and workers for some weeks. 4,200 workers continue to remain on strike, demanding better wage deals, holidays and housing while the union is also demanding that the automaker reinstate suspended employees.
However, it has now come to light that the workers are willing to sit down with management to come to a common consensus on wage dispute which had resulted in factory closure and causing constraints between management and employees.
This decision to have a discussion with management was welcomed, as the company is working with non unionized workers ever since the lockout and functioning on limited plant operations of just 60 to 80 cars per day as against 550 units a day in February.
The twin plants in Bidadi, Bangalore is from where the Fortuner, Innova, Etios and Corolla Altis are produced.
