A day after 400 odd striking workers from the Tata Motors Sanand plant decided to challenge the state labour department prohibiting their strike in the Gujarat High Court, the company has set March 11 as the deadline for the striking workers to resume work, failing which it will be ‘compelled to take appropriate legal action’.
Tata Motors has also moved the Ahmedabad Sessions Court for an injunction to prevent any agitations on the plant premises to ensure protection and safety of its people and property.
This development comes after several rounds of talks between the company representatives and workers, held under the watch of the state labour department, failed to yield any solution and has reached a stalemate.
Close to 422 workers at Tata Motors Sanand plant, who are permanent employees, are on strike since February 22 demanding reinstatement of 26 suspended workers and higher wages.
