New Delhi, November 10
Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) on Tuesday said it has declared a lockout at its Bidadi facility in Karnataka after workers’ union members resorted to a sit-in strike at the factory premises to protest the suspension of a worker. The Bidadi unit has two plants with a total capacity of 3.10 lakh units per annum.
“Despite our efforts to maintain healthy working environment based on active employee participation and maintaining discipline in the plant, one of the employees who has systematic record of misconducts was again involved in breach of discipline and unacceptable behaviour which is in violation of law and service policy of the company,” TKM said. — PTI
