Senior management members injured as workers resort to violence at Maruti Suzukis Manesar plant
|Gurgaon, July 18th, 2012: We are deeply disturbed by the mob violence and arson at our Manesar Plant on Wednesday evening. Several executives, managers and supervisors were brutally attacked and injured, and nearly 100 of them had to be hospitalised.|
|The sequence of events began in the morning with a worker beating up a supervisor on the shop floor. The workers union prevented the management from taking disciplinary action against the worker. As part of their protest, they prevented executives and managers from leaving the factory after working hours. They blocked the exit gates and held the executives hostage.|
|To resolve the issue amicably, members of the senior management met the union. During the talks, the workers attacked the members of the senior management, executives and managers.|
|The workers damaged the office furniture, broke the glass panes and ransacked the office property.|
|Work at the Manesar Plant had to be stopped following the violence in the evening.|
|The Gurgaon plant continued normally.|
