Toyota India resumes 'limited operations'

Japan's Toyota said in a statement that it had resumed "limited production" after its unionised employees refused to return to work following an end to a eight-day company lockout. The Toyota workers and its management at two plants near the southern high-tech city of Bangalore are at loggerheads over pay issues, which they have been negotiating for 10 months. "We have started limited operations with the help of non-unionised team members of whom the majority are engineers and supervisors," Toyota said in a statement. It said an earlier report that the company had hired 1,000 contract workers to fill in for the striking employees was untrue.
