The labour crisis at Maruti Suzuki India aggravated on Monday when the bail plea of three union leaders arrested on Sunday was rejected by a court. Late Sunday, the police had arrested three main leaders representing the workers - president Sonu Gujjar, general secretary Shiv Kumar and Ravinder Kumar, an executive committee member of Maruti Suzuki Employees Union. The three will continue to be in judicial remand at Bhondsi jail for 14 days as the court dismissed their bail plea. They are likely to file new bail applications on Tuesday.
The workers at the Maruti plant are demanding reinstating 57 of its thrown out workers and no signing of Good conduct bond. Maruti officials are however very opposite to what workers are demanding. They say signing of Good Conduct bond is a must and as far as question of reinstating workers, no question arises on that.
