Toyota Kirloskar to resume normal production; Workers to join from today

Toyota Kirloskar to resume normal production; Workers to join from today

Toyota India will resume normal production at its two plants in Bidadi, Karnataka, from today as workers agree to join work. This decision comes in the wake of the Karnataka State government’s directive to the company management and workers to bring back normalcy to production.  

"I am glad," said Shekar Viswanathan, vice-chairman and whole-time director of Toyota Kirloskar, an 89:11venture between the world's largest car maker, Toyota and Kirloskar Group. "I'm happy and relieved but also saddened that so much happened for nothing," Shekar told ET. 

Although the workers will continue to protest against the company management on the issues that weren’t addressed by the management said a senior official of the union. "Both the issues of wages and the suspension of 30 workers are sub judice as it is before the industrial tribunal," said R Satish, general secretary of Toyota Kirloskar Motor Employees Union. 

The production crisis finally comes to an end with the workers joining work, but the issue is far from over as the union is still unhappy with the management. However, it is good news for Toyota and the Indian automotive industry with all 4,500 workers resuming work.
