INDIA: Maruti Suzuki’s union leader suspended after “scuffle”

Maruti Udyog Kamgar Union's (MUKU) general secretary Kuldeep Janghu has reportedly been suspended after a "scuffle" with a manager at Maruti Suzuki's Gurgaon plant.

Maruti Udyog Kamgar Union’s (MUKU) general secretary Kuldeep Janghu has reportedly been suspended after a “scuffle” with a manager at Maruti Suzuki’s Gurgaon plant.

According to sources, “There was trouble in the spare parts division in the Gurgaon plant where a casual worker was manhandled by the manager on Saturday. Janghu intervened in the matter and there was an altercation. Following this, the company has suspended the union leader.”

Janghu confirmed the event and said the union is conducting talks with the management to find a solution. He added, “I was just doing my job as a union functionary. The manager had misbehaved.”

A Maruti spokesperson also confirmed the event and said disciplinary proceedings are being held, ET Auto.com reported.

“We will not accept it lying down. If this matter is not resolved soon, anything is possible,” Janghu said.

Suzuki’s Indian operations are strategically important to the company, but have a history of turbulent labour relations and damaging disputes.
