Supervisory staff  to maintain critical production

Jaipur : The Management of Bosch Limited, Jaipur Plant has imposed an “indefinite lockout of all workmen from the plant operations” with effect from Friday, December 12 , 2008. The decision has been taken as a result of workmen not reporting for duties and continuing their illegal and unlawful strike, even after the order passed by the Government of Rajasthan, prohibiting this illegal strike and asking all workmen to report on duty immediately.

The Mico Bosch Labour Union has been on an indefinite strike at the Jaipur Plant since November 10, 2008 , causing colossal revenue loss to the company and the Government. The company management had held series of meetings with the Labour Union representatives in the presence of the Joint Labour Commissioner, Government of Rajasthan to resolve the issue. Even after many conciliatory meetings, the Union representatives showed reluctance to cooperate for an amicable settlement and held on to their demands. The Union members also resorted to violent means to prevent movement of vehicles to the Plant and scuttle the production process.

This call for strike by the Mico Bosch Labour Union comes at a time when the Automobile Industry is going through a very bad phase and the market demand has been on a continuous decline. The slow down in the economy is also showing its affect on the company.

The Bosch Group is one of the top 25 reputed companies in the world and promotes the principles of fairness; justice and transparency of the group in all its locations around the world. The Bosch group also encourages cordial industrial relations at all its plants across the globe. In the case of Jaipur plant, the company explored all possible legal options to settle this matter but left with no option due to non-cooperation from the striking union members. Hence, as per the legal route, the company is forced to take this decision.

In India, Bosch is a leading supplier of technology and services in the areas of automotive and industrial technology, consumer goods and building technology. Additionally, Bosch also has in India, the largest development centre, outside Germany, for end to end engineering and technology solutions.
