The standoff between Toyota employees and management refuses to die down, with both sides preferring to make the other side blink first. The Karnataka Government has now issued a notice order asking the company and the union to restore normalcy in operations and maintain industrial peace and harmony. The Government has asked the union to return back to work from Monday and allowed the company to employ new workers at the place of union members who refuse to comply with the order.

For those who are not aware, Toyota announced a lock-out at its Bidadi plant on the 18th of last month after a critical situation arose when a few local workers abused and threatened supervisors and senior staff members at the production line, showing disagreement over wage revision. After discussing with the Government for five days, Toyota lifted the lock out on 24th March and agreed to an yearly salary hike of Rs 3100 for a month. However, the workers continued the strike and refused to sign the good conduct agreement and demanded to call back the suspended workers.

The union has now agreed to sign the good conduct agreement last week but is demanding the revoke of suspension of 30 workers. The plant is operational with the help of non-unionised workers, who are producing just 60-80 units, against the 550 units it produced before the strike. Now, Toyota is looking forward to the Government order and expecting the plant to become normal soon.
