Talks fail, strike at Maruti's Manesar plant continues

"The core issue was broadly MSI's unwillingness to compromise on having a non-affiliated internal union," Managing Executive Officer (Administration) SY Siddiqui said.

He also said while the company is flexible for other demands, "dismissal of 11 people stands as it is and the way forward, we are open for further talks".

"The government was appreciative of MSI's offer to the striking workers and the considerate way in which the company had approached the issue," he added.

Haryana Minister of State for Labour and Employment Shiv Charan Lal Sharma along with state Labour Commissioner Satwanti Ahlawat led the negotiations.

A worker, who asked not to be identified, said: "We will continue the strike till all our demands are met".

Already the state government has banned the strike, which has so far resulted in production loss of 9,000 units at an estimated value of around Rs 450 crore.

Around 2,000 workers at the plant have been on strike since June 4, resulting in a loss of about Rs 390 crore for the company on account of a 7,800-unit hit in output till Saturday.

The factory had its weekly-off on Sunday.
