Economic Times reported that labour trouble has erupted again at Royal Enfield’s Oragadam plant with 600-700 permanent employees on strike for the last two days over issues of transfer of some employees and pending bonus payments. CITU state president A Soundararajan said that “The problem this time is that the management is transferring and victimising the workers. It started when the management transferred the general secretary of the registered employees trade union. Immediately around 700 permanent workers went on stay in strike after which the police intervened to get them to vacate the premises.”

The problem, he said, is similar to what happened recently in Hyundai Motor India’s Sriperumbudur plant. He said that “The management refused to recognize or accept the registered trade union but will only talk to the 5 or 7 member workers’ committee. If the management stand does not change, the strike will continue.”

The Royal Enfield workers’ trade union was registered last July in the middle of labour unrest all along the Oragadam belt in companies like Yamaha, Royal Enfield and others.
