TE Connectivity says committed to resuming Bangalore ops

Electronics communication products manufacturing TE Connectivity has responded to the strike at its Bangalore plant since March 7 by calling it illegal and saying that it is committed to reopening the plant “on a priority basis”.

In a statement circulated to the media on Saturday, TE Connectivity said that operations at the plant could be resumed provided the employees restore complete normalcy and reach an early amicable settlement through discussions.

“A large number of workers have been unlawfully staying inside the factory for the last two days. This has created a situation which is not safe for the workers and the plant and equipment in the factory,” TE Connectivity said in its statement, which was not attributed to any of its senior executives.

The company said that its India management and representatives of the TE Employee Union have been discussing the worker’s charter of demands for wage increase.
“The management and the union have been in talks to arrive at wage increase agreement. TE Connectivity has proactively offered wage increase considering the overall interests of employees and business,” the statement said.
