Auto major Mahindra & Mahindra on Tuesday said its workers at Nashik plant have threatened to go on strike from Monday if the ongoing wage negotiations with the management are not settled by then.
The workers today partially stopped production at two assembly lines, causing an output loss of around 90 vehicles.
"The company has received a notice of strike from the Employees' Union, Nashik to commence the strike on or after March 11, 2013, should the Charter of Demand made by them are not settled by that time.
"The management is in regular dialogue with the union for the normal wage negotiation process and will put in its best efforts to reach a mutually agreeable settlement at the earliest possible," Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) said in a filing to the BSE.
The company, however, did not share details such as what are the exact demands of the workers and since how long the wage negotiations are going on.
Besides, workers at the facility stopped work today.
"...there was a brief stoppage of work for about three hours in two assembly shops of the company's Nashik Plant... the management is confident that the shortfall in production of around 90 vehicles will be soon made good," M&M said. Production was back to normal from the second shift in all shops of the plant, it added.
"There is no material effect of this temporary disruption on the production and operations front," the company said. The appropriate government agencies are being kept informed of the situation and are also part of the discussions in this regard, the filing said.
