Toyota to lift lockout at Indian assembly plants following unrest

BANGALORE, India--Toyota said that it would lift a lockout next week on its Indian assembly plants after a meeting with labor groups and a local government mediator to resolve a pay dispute.

A total of 17 workers have been suspended for alleged misconduct and lack of discipline including threats against management and deliberate assembly-line stoppages over the protests at two factories in southern India.

Toyota decided to resume production on March 24 after talks with its workers' union and a senior state labor official late on Thursday.

“The decision (to lift lockout) was taken considering the inclination and in the interest of the majority of law-abiding team members,” Toyota Kirloskar Motor Ltd said in an emailed statement late Thursday.

The company has asked the employees to give an undertaking of good conduct before resuming work on Monday, a precondition termed as “harsh” by trade union leader R. Satish.
