Workers’ strike at the Maruti Suzuki India’s Manesar plant continued for the sixth day today and the production continues to be completely stopped.

“The situation is the same as yesterday,” a company spokesperson told PTI.

Around 2,000 workers at the plant have been on strike since Saturday, resulting in a production loss of about 4,200 units till yesterday and the value of the loss is estimated to be around Rs 210 crore.

The striking workers are demanding the recognition of a new union — Maruti Suzuki Employees Union (MSEU) — formed by those working at the Manesar plant, among other things.

The Manesar plant rolls out about 1,200 units every day in two shifts. The factory produces hatchbacks Swift and A-Star and sedans DZiRE and SX4.

Meanwhile, the company’s shares were trading at Rs 1,215.30 apiece in the morning trade on the Bombay Stock Exchange today, down 0.88 per cent from the previous close.
