The Karnataka government on Wednesday banned the strike launched by the Toyota Kirloskar Motor Employees Union from November 9 at the car manufacturing factory in Bidadi, with immediate effect.

In an order issued in this regard, the government said the decision to ban the strike was taken due to the dispute between the TKM Employees Union and the management of the company regarding various demands of the workers by exercising powers under the Section 10(3) of the Industrial Disputes Act, 1947, a press statement said.

The government has also banned the lock-out declared by the management of TKM from November 10 with immediate effect, the statement added.
