India: Wildcat strike at Maruti Suzuki continues, may spread

The strike at the Indian carmaker’s Manesar plant has entered its sixth day, with threats of similar strikes at other plants being made.

The wildcat strike exploded a week ago, with around 2,000 workers demanding the recognition of a new union – Maruti Suzuki Employees Union (MSEU) – formed by those working at the Manesar plant, among other things.

Around 1,000 workers from different firms in the Gurgaon-Manesar industrial belt gathered at the gate of MSI’s Manesar plant today to express solidarity with the MSEU strikers.

In India the name Dhanbad is synonymous with coal mafia. Together with the ‘nationalised command’ over the mines appeared a ‘mafia mode of production’, which was both part and outcome of the re-structuring process.
