A section of employees at the Korean auto-major Hyundai Motor India's manufacturing facility near here went on a brief flash strike today, partially affecting the production for little over an hour.
Approximately 130 workers of the the Hyundai Motor India Employees Union (HMIEU) backed by CITU resorted to strike for 78 minutes disrupting production of 59 cars, Hyundai Motor India (HMI) said in a statement.
The company produces 2,000 cars every day, the statement said, adding that "the production has resumed and factory is functioning normally".
HMI currently has two manufacturing facilities at Sriperumbudur near here, with a total capacity of about six lakh units a year.
Stating that the workers violated the unanimous decision of the Tripartite Committee taken on December 9, 2010, it said, "An injunction was also issued by the Judicial Magistrate, Sriperumbudur to HMIEU, restraining it from holding any strike, demonstration, unlawful activities within the factory premises and within 100 metre radius of the factory".
The company said HMIL recognised the non-political body United Union of Hyundai Employees (UUHE) having about 1,300 permanent workers against the total employee base of 2,007.
Recently UUHE has signed an agreement with the HMIL, the statement said adding, "the company is categorical that it will not recognise any other union".
The demand of HMIEU was to reinstate 28 workers who were dismissed in 2008. However, the company statement made no reference to it.
