CHENNAI: A third strike in nine months loomed large over Hyundai Motor India with a section of workers today saying that they will go ahead with a
tools-down agitation if the management or the state labour department do not act positively on their demands.

"We have given a notice...If we don't get any positive action from Hyundai management or from the labour department, we will fix the date for going ahead with a strike after December 5," CITU state general secretary A Soundararajan said.

The CITU-affiliated Hyundai Motor India Employees Union, which has support of about 300 workers, have threatened to go on strike demanding reinstatement of 80 dismissed workers.

Asked if the strike call will not amount to a breach of the MoU signed with the management in July, he said, "at that time they told us that they would reinstate 80 dismissed employees but they reinstated only 20."

He said the remaining dismissed 60 employees should be reinstated and their trade union, comprising 1,200 workers, should be "recognised".

An HMIL spokesperson, however, dismissed the claims saying, "as per the MoU signed with the workers, we have agreed to reinstate only 20 employees and we have fully implemented them. This strike is only to derail the electoral process for selecting a Workers Committee."

seems this is again going to have hyundai face labour problems in ths year,and labour unions seems to have never learned the ways from history.

Hyundai workers put strike plan on hold

Hyundai workers at its plant here will not go on strike tomorrow as the state labour department has initiated "reconciliatory" efforts.

About 300-odd workers, under the aegis of Hyundai Motor India Employees Union, supported by Centre for Indian Trade Union (CITU) had threatened to go on a strike from tomorrow demanding reinstatement of 60 colleagues suspended in a previous strike in July.

A Soundararajan CITU General Secretary (Tamil Nadu), said
Yesterday, we got the "reconciliatory" letter from the office of the Deputy Commissioner of Labour. As of now there is no plan for going on strike. We will decide about that later after the discussion.

These Labour problems pose a big threat for new players entering the market. The current ruling party of the state will always favor labours(caste, community, religion, groups, etc..) and insist on giving free stuffs and so on, just to get more votes in the poll. They never care about the developing economy, unless they too are getting benefited out of it. So i doubt Hyundai getting much hep from local government.
