Tension gripped the Suzuki Motorcycles India plant near the Kherki Dhaula toll plaza after three employees, all union leaders, were suspended by the management on Friday morning. To deal with any labour unrest, nearly 100 policemen guarded the complex.

General secretary, vice-president and treasurer of the Suzuki Motorcycle India Employees’ Union were suspended after an argument, which broke out between them and a company VP, led to a major brawl at the canteen on Wednesday.

While the company management claims that its VP was manhandled by the workers, the employees’ union president Anil Kumar alleged that it was the VP, who provoked the brawl by abusing the union general secretary, Avnesh Kumar.

Anil added that the management has failed to address the union’s grievances over their settlement agreement reached last year after the formation of the employees’ union.

Gurgaon labour officer Ramesh Ahuja, is mediating between the two groups.

“The union has not brought any of their grievances to our notice. If they do, we will try to solve them,” said Ahuja.

Anil said he was in touch with his counterparts in Maruti Suzuki India and Suzuki Powertrain for their support. “Three of our union office bearers are reinstated,” said Anil.
