It was June 2013, situation had got tense at Bajaj's plant at Chakan when the union had called for a strike, and stopped working for 50 days demanding the wages to be reviewed. The labour strife has resurfaced for the second time in less than a year. The Union - Vishwa Kalyan Kamgar Sanghatana - has been asking for allotment of equity shares at a discounted rate of Rs. 10 along with the wage hike since June 2013.

According to a notice issued by the union being led by Dilip Pawar, the workers plan to go on an indefinite strike from 28th April. Meanwhile, the issue is also pending before the Bombay High Court.

In a statement issued by Bajaj Auto some hours ago, Rajiv Bajaj shot back saying, "If the demands of the union were somewhat preposterous the last time in June 2013, they are entirely insane this time around. It seems to me that with some of the irresponsible union leaders & members, the management is guilty of sparing the rod and spoiling the child.

We will be certain not to repeat that error while taking all possible care to ensure the safety of the majority of our colleagues who wish to continue to work, as also the continuity of production so as to protect the interests of our customers, dealers, and suppliers."
