New Delhi, June 13: India's largest car maker Maruti Suzuki's Manesar plant strike continues when it entered 10th day on Monday, June 13. Car-maker Maruti faced a massive blow when 800 workers at its Manesar plant went on strike.

It seems the workers wouldn't call off their rigid strike until their demands are met. Workers' demand for the Maruti Suzurki Employees Union have been recognised by the management.

Earlier the strike caused a loss of Rs.40 crore a day in sales. It affected the delivery of diesel cars. But now, on the 10th day of the strike the crisis at Maruti's Manesar plant seems to worsen.

The strike that is on since June 4, resulted a loss of around Rs 390 crore for the company on account of a 7,800-unit hit in output till Saturday, June 11.

On Sunday, Jun 12 the management agreed to recognise the new union formed by the workers. But, according to a company spokesman, the workers are very adamant and the strike is still on, that has stopped production in the plant.

But it seems that the workers aren't yet satisfied as they now demand more. They want all 11 of their sacked colleagues to be reinstated but Maruti agreed to reinstate only 5.
