What looks Great is not always Great.
Production at the Bombardier Transportation factory in India is under totally jeopardy as the management fails to convince the 250 workers who have gone on strike since the last Monday. Although the Passenger division of this green field site (at Savli near Baroda in India) which came into operation in 2009 has currently no major workload, the survival of this factory seems difficult with the workers threatening to intensify their agitation against the termination letter and show-cause notice issued to them by the company against their complaints/grievances pertaining to the ill treatment and poor facilities provided by the company during their deputation assignment at New Delhi (where Bombardier is still taking care of the service aspect of the metro trains delivered for DMRC project order). The workers seem to have an upper edge considering the fact that their grievances seems to be quite justified and that ill treatment and verbal abuse by their supervisors and management can in no way be neglected. They have also been supported by a well known Union, which is known to have always got away with the cake in such scenario. No marks in guessing what would be the outcome of this scenario, for Bombardier will now surely have Unions. What needs to be seen is whether these terminated workers are successful in preventing the 100 other workers who are working for the Bogies division to enter the factory on next Monday. Bogies division which forms a part of this factory incidentally is working on an important project order and has an approximate strength of 150 including 100 workmen. Pierre Beaudoin, hope your associates have updated you regarding this !!
