Striking workers of Gurgaon's Bajaj Motors allege labour department working hand in glove with their management
The workers of Bajaj Motors in Gurgaon are striking for a month now. Around 700 workers have stopped work and are now protesting with banners in front of the company gate. Meetings with the Deputy Labour Commissioner (DLC) have been going on, but no solution has been reached as of yet. The media too is unusually quite about the entire incident.

Ankit Tyagi, the union leader, gave us full detail as to what started the agitation and where it is headed to. It started, when labourers on February 24 went to the factory in Gurgaon to see a list of 15 people suspended from work on the grounds of 'low production.'

Tyagi further added, ''Two days earlier to this, there was an application sent to the Labour Department that the union has been behind the lowering of the production.'' The labourers were at a loss as to what to do and the best way to voice their opinions was through a protest. Hence they have been protesting since then.

They have held a number of meetings with the DLC, but no solution has come out of it. Talking about conspiracies, Tyagi says, ''Labour department is working hand in gloves with the company on this issue and we are talking to the officials concerned (JP Maan) but no results are visible as of yet.''
