Bajaj Auto Ltd (BAL) today said workmen at its Chakan plant have "stopped coming" to work thereby affecting production following the management's refusal to allot them shares at discounted price.
The company said the workers had earlier given a notice for a stoppage of work at the plant from the morning shift of June 28, 2013.
"The workmen have, however, stopped coming to the Chakan plant from June 25, 2013, itself, without assigning any reason for this stoppage," BAL said in a filing to the BSE.
The company said it had earlier received a notice from the workmen's union of its Chakan plant -- Vishwa Kalyan Kamgar Sanghatana stating that they propose to call for a stoppage of work by all the workmen employed in Chakan plant from the morning shift of June 28, 2013.
The reason for the strike was "that management had refused to concede their demand that all the workmen working in Bajaj Auto Ltd should each be given an option to subscribe to 500 equity shares of the company at a discounted price of Re 1 per share", it added.
Representatives of the union could not be reached immediately for the strike.
