Suzuki Motorcycle suspends two over clash

This incident follows another in 2011 when three workers were suspended by Suzuki Motorcycle after the union went on strike to support the strike by workers at Maruti Suzuki's nearby Manesar plant who were demanding registration of their own union at the time. However, this suspension was revoked after a while.

Labour trouble has had an uncomfortable association with the Gurgaon-Manesar industrial belt and it has only heightened in the recent times.

The extreme case had been the July 18, 2012, violence at Maruti Suzuki's Manesar plant that claimed the life of a company official and injured 96 others.

Maruti also saw sporadic strikes at the plant between June and October, 2011. Meanwhile, labour disputes have also taken place across Honda Motorcycle's Manesar plant, component makers Rico Auto and Sunbeam Auto. Even Hero MotoCorp's ongoing wage talks at its Gurgaon plant now threaten to spiral into a strike after around six months of negotiations.
