CITU DENOUNCES VINDICTIVE TERMINATION OF WORKERS IN YAMAHA PLANT IN TAMILNADU EXTENDS SUPPORT TO CONTINUOUS STRIKE BY 3000 WORKERS IN PROTEST  

The Centre of Indian Trade Unions strongly denounces the illegal and vindictive termination of two employees by the management of the Japanese MNC, YAMAHA in its plant in Tamilnadu.

The employees were terminated without any notice and showing any reason therefor immediately after the formation of the trade union there and submission of their charter of demands under section 2(k) of the Industrial Disputes Act.

As a natural reaction to such illegal and vindictive termination by the YAMAHA management, all the here thousand workers started instant sit-in strike in the plant from 21st September 2018.

The AIADMK Govt in Tamilnadu shamefully demonstrating slavish loyality to the Japanese management by letting lose the police repression on the workers on peacefully sit-in strike and arrested three leading workers on false and fabricated charges.

CITU condemns the state govt of Tamilnadu for brutal repressive measures on the peaceful strike of the workers against illegal termination and also the Japanese MNC management for unlawfully victimizing the workers for asserting their constitutional right by forming trade union under the Law of the Land.

CITU demands upon the Govt of Tamilnadu to intervene in consistence with the constitutional provisions and compel the YAMAHA management to reinstate all terminated workers and defend their constitutional right to form trade union. The Govt must ensure release of all the arrested workers unconditionally.

CITU welcomes the trade unions of Tamilnadu and CITU unions in particular for extending support to the struggling workers of YAMAHA. CITU calls upon to intensify the united statewide solidarity action to compel both the state Govt and the YAMAHA management to see reasons and restore normalcy through release of the arrested workers, reinstatement of terminated workers and granting recognition of the trade union in YAMAHA.
