BENGALURU:German auto components major, Bosch has announced lockout at its Jaipur plan due to ongoing labour unrest at the facility.

Lockout.jpgThe fresh blow to the company comes months after it resumed work at its Bengaluru facility which was also under lockout due to wage and other issues with its labour union (Mico Employees Association).

In a filing to the BSE, Bosch said, “the company’s management has taken a considered decision in declaring a lockout against the labour union and workmen of the company’s Jaipur plant indulging in a ‘Go-Slow’ action, effective April 5, 2015.

The company’s management decision to take such an action was taken as the union has been on an illegal Go-slow since March 19, 2015 reducing output by upto 70% of the normal output. Subsequently, since April 2, 2015, the union has been on an illegal hunger strike.”

Jaipur plant was shut for a day in March over wage issues. The company witnessed a strike by Bengaluru based union (MEA) for over two months last year.

Bosch said that their wage negotiations with workmen at the Jaipur plant has been going on for the last 20 months.
