Tata Motors says workers resumed duty from 23 March 2016 and normalcy has been restored at the Sanand plant
New Delhi: Tata Motors on Wednesday said workers at its Sanand plant in Gujarat have called off their more than a month-long strike.
“Workmen have called off the strike and resumed duty from 23 March 2016 and normalcy has been restored at the Sanand plant," Tata Motors said in a BSE filing. Sanand is one of Tata Motors’s six plants in India where the firm manufactures the Nano small car and soon the Tiago hatchback. It has a annual production capacity of 200,000 units.
“...Being manufacturers of the complete range of CVs and a portfolio of PVs, this said event does not have a material impact on the overall company’s operation/performance," said Tata Motors in the filing.
In February, about 300 workers at the Sanand plant went on flash strike to press for reinstatement of around 20 of their colleagues who have been suspended for serious misconduct.
The company had said that there had been continued agitations for monetary increases as well as protests against disciplinary actions against those instigating the workmen, resulting in serious threat to company personnel as well as losses due to tampering.
Labour issues at the Sanand facility surfaced at a time when a plant of one of its subsidiaries -- Tata Marcopolo Motors plant in Dharwad, Karnataka was locked out temporarily following strike by workmen over wage negotiations.
On Wednesday, Tata Motors shares ended 0.01% up at Rs376.95 apiece on BSE while the benchmark closed 0.03% higher at 25,337.56 points.
