HC grants police protection to Bosch

Senior level executives were prevented from entering the plant on March 7. Following this, the company declared a lockout on March 8. However, this lockout was lifted on March 13. The company employs 782 people at the plant and manufactures spark plugs and other accessories. The Madivala ACP on March 9 told the executives that he would not be able to provide police protection, if the executives entered the offices and confirmed his order a day later.

The Court ordered the respondents, the Commissioner of Police, Deputy Commissioner of Police of South East and ACP of Madivala to provide protection as sought by the petitioners.

Talks inconclusive

The conciliatory talks between the Bosch management and employees initiated by the Labour Department over the impasse on workers’ salary remained inconclusive on Monday. The talks will continue on March 25.

At a meeting held on Friday last, Assistant Labour Commissioner Narasimahaiah had directed the Bosch management to lift the lock out from first shift on Saturday and at the same time directed the workers to maintain normal working conditions, pending their charter of demands.
