Labour trouble has had an uncomfortable association with the Gurgaon-Manesar industrial belt and it has only heightened in the recent times.
The extreme case had been the July 18, 2012, violence at Maruti Suzuki’s Manesar plant that claimed the life of a company official and injured 96 others.
Maruti also saw sporadic strikes at the plant between June and October, 2011. Meanwhile, labour disputes have also taken place across Honda Motorcycle’s Manesar plant, component makers Rico Auto and Sunbeam Auto. Even Hero MotoCorp’s ongoing wage talks at its Gurgaon plant now threaten to spiral into a strike after around six months of negotiations.
