Maruti Suzuki India broke months of strike by workers at the Manesar plant on Friday. The strike leader has left the company after taking Rs 40 lakh in settlement.

Thirty union leaders left the company with the strike leader.

The Manesar plant was rolling about 1,200 cars every day before the first strike hit in June. The unit produces Maruti Suzuki’s Swift, A-Star and SX4 models.

The 14-day-long strike at the plant, causing an estimated over Rs 700 crore loss, was called off following a tripartite agreement that reinstated 64 dismissed permanent workers and took back 1,200 casual workers. However, 30 permanent workers remain suspended.

Earlier, in June, workers at the Manesar plant went on a 13-day strike demanding the recognition of a new labour body, Maruti Suzuki Employees Union. The stir had resulted in a production loss of 12,600 cars, valued at about Rs 630 crore.

From August 29, the company again witnessed a 33-day standoff when the management prevented workers from entering the plant without signing a ‘good conduct bond’.
