Maruti Suzuki India's Manesar plant observed a one-hour tool down on Thursday in protest of suspension of four workers. The tool-down resulted in a production loss of 20-22 cars, a worker told Business Line.

The workers were suspended for "allegedly assaulting a supervisor" on Wednesday.

When contacted, a company spokesperson said: "One of the supervisors was assaulted by four to five workers yesterday and when disciplinary action was being taken by way of suspension today, they have struck works at the plant."

Out of them, two are office bearers of the Maruti Suzuki Employees Union (MSEU), including General Secretary, Mr. Shiv Kumar.

Just over a month ago, the workers, demanding a new union, (Maruti Suzuki Employees Union) had called a 13-day stir that resulted in a loss of 13,400 cars valued at Rs 460 crore.
