New Delhi: Production at leading automobile companies in the Gurgaon-Manesar belt, including Maruti Suzuki, Hero MotoCorp and Suzuki Motorcycle India, will be hit on Thursday as workers have decided to stay away from work in support of the two-day strike called by central trade unions on Wednesday.
"We had a meeting with representatives of different unions in the region and we have agreed to go on a one-day strike tomorrow in support of the Central Unions. There will not be any production tomorrow both at Maruti's Gurgaon and Manesar plants," Maruti Udyog Kamgar Union (MUKU) General Secretary Kuldeep Jhangu told PTI.
Similarly, Hero MotoCorp Workers Union (HMCWU) President Kanwalpreet Singh said the workers at the company's Gurgoan factory will be on a "one-day strike" on February 21.
Incidentally, the workers at the plant have been negotiating unsuccessfully with the management for over six months for a three-year wage settlement.
