Toyota workers refuse to sign good-conduct pledge

The impasse at Toyota Kirloskar Motor continues with workers staying away from work on Monday. In a statement, the company said it had lifted the lockout and would keep shifts running. “The plants will be open for team members to join duty on the condition that they sign the simple good conduct undertaking,” the statement said. A workers’ union spokesperson, however, said that unless the company waives the condition to sign the undertaking on an individual basis, they would not join duty. “The union is ready to sign the undertaking but not on an individual basis,” said Satish Kumar, General-Secretary of the union.
