Auto industry in India is getting attention of international unions. The Shramik Ekta Mahasangh launched by unions in Pune is affiliated to IndustriALL Global Union, in which International Metalworkers Federation merged. Readers of this blog will recall that recently an international delegation visited Maruti Suzuki and published a report ‘Merchants of Menace.’
The international delegation [of International International Commission for Labor Rights] is supported by IndustriALL Global Union. This means that the Government will not be able to keep quiet if the situation goes out of control. In Manesar it was a willing accomplice as the report says, but doing it in Pune is not going to be easy. Particularly so when elections seem to be on the anvil.
