...[H]undreds of workers of automobile manufacturing factories in Manesar...staged a demonstration. It was a show of solidarity with 13 former workers of Maruti Suzuki India Limited who were handed life sentences...for the death of a manager during rioting at the plant in 2012. Permanent and contract workers (employed on seven-month contracts) of Maruti Suzuki and Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Private Limited – which operate the two largest automobile plants in Manesar – joined the demonstration and public meeting, as did workers from over 20 vendor companies that supply automobile parts to both companies. Hours after the sentencing in a Gurgaon court, the Maruti Suzuki Workers Union, too, had organised a one-hour “tool down” protest at all four of the company’s plants and at two others owned by vendor companies. They have planned a national protest on April 4...[workers] described the events of 2011-’12 and the court verdict as the continuation of an industry-worker tussle that has been going on at Manesar for years.
