Car workers fight back and win in India

After a bitter strike lasting 59 days, the workers at Autofit factory, Dharuhera, Haryana state have won their fight against union busting. The company has agreed to take back all 17 sacked union activists as well as agreeing to a wage rise. The important character of the strike was the unity between contract and permanent workers. Many similar strikes are happening in the Gurgaon industrial region near New Delhi. This area came to prominence with the major struggle of the Maruti Suzuki workersof a couple of years ago. Over 100 workers are still in jail from this dispute, but the fight for justice and their release has not finished. Internationally, the car industry is experiencing many struggles and disputes.
