BENGALURU: Toyota Kirloskar Motor said it has withdrawn the lockdown, imposed in its Bidadi plant since November. This followed a meeting with Karnataka’s deputy chief minister.
However, the suspension of 66 unionised employees, which led to the problem between the workers and the management, will continue pending enquiry and workers will have to sign an undertaking, while reporting.
“This will be in the interest of both team members and their families as well as the company. Consequent to the lifting of the lockout, operations will enhance with effect from second shift of January 12, 2021, in both the plants,” Toyota said in a statement.
