Bangalore: Bosch Ltd has announced that it has lifted the lockout at its Naganathapura Plant with effect from March 13, 2010. The Management of the Company had declared a 'Lock Out' of all workmen from the plant operations with effect from 10.30 P.M. on March 08, 2010.

Considering the assurances given by the MKS-N, Bosch Limited decided to lift the lockout at its Plant, pending discussions on all issues of Charter of Demands, submitted by the Union, for an amicable settlement.

The decision was taken at a conciliatory meeting chaired by the Addl. Labour Commissioner, who advised the management of the company to consider lifting the lockout and also advised the Mico Karmikara Sangha, Naganathapura, (MKS-N) the recognized union of the Plant to restore normalcy in production and productivity.

The Naganathpura plant employs around 715 permanent employees, while there are 2,400 permanent employees at the Bangalore unit.

Since February 12, the union had been on 'go slow' strike resulting in 40 per cent reduction in production.

Following labour threats to the plant managers on Sunday and tool down strike since Monday, the lockout had been declared to protect the plant machinery.

The wages were last reviewed in December 2008 and the negotiations for fresh wages are understood to have begun in July-August 2009.
