Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) Private Limited, Bidadi has declared lock out with effect from 16th March 2014.

Bangalore, 16th March 2014: The Management and the Union have been discussing the charter of demands for the period FY13-14 for the past 10 months. As bipartite agreement was not reached, the Labor Department of the Government of Karnataka conducted 7 tripartite meetings in order to reach a settlement. The conciliation efforts of the Labor Department have not yet resulted in an agreement.

In the meantime, under the instigation of the union, certain sections of the employees have resorted to deliberate stoppages of the production line, abuse and threatening of supervisors thereby continuously disrupting business for the past 25 days. All these unlawful activities have been detailed in the lock-out notice.

With this background, the Company is left with no other option but to declare a lockout of the premises to ensure the safety of its workers and management personnel.
