BANGALORE: The ongoing fight between the workmen union and the management of Bosch Limited is all set for a showdown on Monday. The MICO Employees Association has decided to hold a protest outside Chief Minister Siddaramaiah’s residence demanding immediate withdrawal of the order prohibiting their strike.

The strike, which began on September 16 entered its 25th day on Saturday.

In a surprise move on Friday, the government issued an order prohibiting the strike with immediate effect under Section 10(1) sub clause C/D and Section 10(3) of the Industrial Disputes Act, 1947.

However, a statement from the MICO Employees Association stated, “The management has started to torture the workmen one or other ways.”

The statement goes on to criticise the government for banning the strike instead of “providing relief to the workers”.

The Association members also plan to submit a memorandum to the Chief Minister urging him to lift the ban on the strike as well as issue specific directions to the management to resolve the issue.

Meanwhile, the Bosch statement said, “Bosch Ltd offers one of the best working environments, welfare and medical benefits to its workmen associates, ensuring their growth and development. Our current offer on the wage negotiation to the Workmen Union is also one of the best amongst comparable industries.”
