Maruti Suzuki is looking to hire 1,000 shop-floor workers from Gujarat for its manufacturing plant at Manesar, Haryana that had to be locked out briefly following a large-scale violence by workmen in July last year. This will be one of the biggest recruitments to have been done by the company in the state.
The company, in association with Gujarat government agencies, is planning a job fair on January 30 at the Industrial Training Institute, Kubernagar (Ahmedabad) for recruiting workers.
"Maruti Suzuki has about 1,000 vacant positions in its Manesar plant. These positions include automobile technicians, electricians, painters, turners and fitters, among others," A M Malwade, deputy director (employment), Directorate of Employment & Training, told The Indian Express. The directorate is organising the job fair for the car manufacturer.
"We are in the process of issuing call letters to ITI passouts in the state for this job fair," he added.
Malwade said this was not the first time that a large firm from outside Gujarat was scouting for workers for skilled positions from the state. "For recruiters, Gujarat is the best place, as we have a culture of industrial peace," he said.
This is possibly one of the largest recruitment drives to be conducted by the car major after it declared a lock-out at the Manesar plant on July 21, 2012 following violence by workers. It had dismissed nearly 500 permanent workers and resumed work in August.
When contacted, Maruti Suzuki officials said the recruitment drive in the state is part of its pan-India drive being conducted by the company for the Manesar plant. "We have done recruitments in Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Rajasthan as well," said a senior company official.
