Bosch strike: Global chairman seeks proactive labour reforms

The global chairman of the Bosch board, Dr Volkmar Denner, has said he is extremely concerned about the ongoing strike at the Bangalore plant of the world’s leading auto part maker. He has sought labour reforms of the kind that will help the Indian manufacturing sector remain competitive. “Labour reforms are necessary provided they help us to remain competitive,” Denner told newspersons during his maiden visit to the country. The chairman of the Bosch board was peppered with questions on the labour strike, which has been going on for the last 45 days. Nearly 2,300 workers at the company’s Bangalore plant are on strike, seeking better wages to match the higher productivity norms put in place by the auto-parts maker. The Karnataka Government has banned the strike while the workers have filed a writ petition in the High Court against the order.
