Maruti’s Manesar plant workers boycott union election

Workers at Maruti Suzuki India’s Manesar plant have boycotted the union election of the company held today saying they will go ahead to form their own body. The workers, who had gone on a 13-day-long strike on June 4 under the aegis of Maruti Suzuki Employees Union (MSEU) demanding recognition of their association, said they will not recognise the outcome of the “management stage-managed” poll of Maruti Udyog Kamgar Union (MUKU). MUKU is the sole recognised union of the company and is dominated by workers at the Gurgaon plant. Three candidates were put up by the management from the Manesar plant.
