Honda Motors is the big y notice. The workers struck work demanding that the suspended workers be taken back to work.gest two wheeler supplier in the world. The company used to be called Hero Honda earlier. The company accounts for 39% of the market in two wheelers. The company has three factories - two in Haryana - in Daruheda and Gurgaon, and one in Uttarakhand - in Hardwar. A fourth factory is being established in Neemrana village of Rajasthan. There is no union in the Hardwar factory, while there are unions in the other two factories.

Following seven months of talks and notice of strike by workers in the Gurgaon factory, a wage settlement for 3 years was reached in April 2013.The Hardwar factory is the largest of the three, manufacturing 8500 two-wheelers daily. There are about 4000

 workers work in this factory; most of them are on contract. Some workers had taken the lead to form a union here, and it was precisely these that were suspended. This move to frighten and cow down the workers was opposed tooth and nail by all the workers.

The prevailing economic crisis has severely impacted the auto industry. In this context, the capitalists try every trick to impose the burden on the workers. For eg., by increasing the number of contract workers, cutting down on wages or keep them stagnant, laying off workers and increasing the working hours. It was against such attacks that workers of Bajaj Auto in Chakan, Maharashtra, and Mahindra & Mahindra in Nashik, Maharashtra fought earlier this year.

It is evident that the capitalists will attack workers’ rights in every possible way in the context of the present economic crisis. At this time, the struggle of the workers of Honda Motor Corporation is inspiring. Mazdoor Ekta Lehar congratulates the workers for their united struggle.
