The case filed by the management of Bajaj Auto Limited (BAL) against the ongoing strike of the workers,is likely to come up for hearing on Wednesday. Aditya Joshi,the lawyer for the company stated the case,which had come up for hearing on Tuesday was postponed.

More than,1,000 workers of the company’s Chakan plant have stopped work since June 26. Other than asking for shares of the company at concessional rates,the workers are asking for a new wage agreement and other facilities from the company.

The management has refused to concede to the workers’ demands and approached the industrial tribunal,asking for the ongoing strike to be declared illegal.

Dilip Pawar,president of the Vishwa Kalyan Kamgar Sanghatana,the labour union spearheading the ongoing stir was present in court on Tuesday.

The court has issued notices to the Sanghtana,asking for its say in the matter. Pawar,was supposed to submit the wakalatnama,which he said would be done on Wednesday.

The management had declared that the ongoing work stoppage had not hindered their production much,and they have also stated that they would be shifting the production of bikes from the Chakan to their Walunj plant. The Chakan plant manufactures the Pulsar range of bikes,which is a huge success in the market.
