Renault-Nissan Workers in India to go on Strike Over COVID-Related Safety Demands

24 May 2021

    Workers at Renault-Nissan's car plant in southern India will go on strike on Wednesday due to their COVID-related safety demands not having been met accordingly. 


    The strike threat at the plant in Tamil Nadu, jointly owned by Nissan Motor and alliance partner Renault, comes ahead of a court hearing over allegations from workers that social distancing norms were being neglected and factory health policies were “not adhered to.


    “Due to unsafe working conditions and as the union demands have not been met ... members of this union will not report to work from the first shift on Wednesday”, the union said in a letter. The union represents around 3,500 workers at the plant.


    Renault-Nissan told an Indian court last week it rejected claims that COVID-19 safety protocols were being ignored at the factory, adding it needed to continue production to meet orders.
