With the support of Renault, Nissan and the Madras High Court, it allows production with drivers

Renault and Nissan will breathe a sigh of relief after the Madras High Court granted permission to the two automakers to continue production at the Tamil Nadu Chennai facility. The court’s gesture came after a week-long hiatus between the motorists and the workers ’union over the work situation at the facility due to Covdown-19 and medical facilities for workers in the middle of the blockade.

Problems began in the French and Japanese major car alliance late last month when Renault Nissan India Thozhilalar Sangam (RNITS) workers’ union raised objects in the installation for lack of the Covid-19 protocol, as well as appropriate social restraint rules. restrictions in the state.

It appears, however, that Renault and Nissan ended up after reaching an agreement with the Chennai manufacturing workers ’union. The two sides signed a provisional agreement to end the stalemate that began last month.

The Madras Court has granted Renault and Nissan permission to continue production at its facilities, but has set certain conditions. The Supreme Court’s gesture came with a cyclist complying with the rules related to the Pandemic.

The court issued interim orders on a petition filed by the workers’ union at the Renault-Nissan facility, raising safety concerns and challenging a government notification that allowed carmakers to continue production even during closure.

By order of the Supreme Court, a senior government official inspected the facility and submitted the report. The High Court said the report includes a number of additional measures that need to be taken to make the facility’s Covid-19 protocol compatible.

“Given the immediate changes in manufacturing facilities proposed by government officials, it appears that management has shown sufficient concern for the safety and health of workers and would not lower the guard in terms of safety measures,” the court found.

In response to the request, Nissan has assured that all directives will be followed until operations are resumed. A spokesman for Nissan said, “We have started this workshop early this week because of the challenges posed by the recent growth in the Indian Covid-19 case after a short break, people are still stronger and more transparent at first. Their health and safety are key to our operations. We have already implemented them in one of the production lines, in accordance with previous agreements with the union on worker safety, and we will lower them in a second production line as soon as possible, as well as the recommendations of the state government after the final inspections.

The plant currently has more than 8,000 employees who manufacture vehicles for both manufacturers at the same time. So far, four workers at that facility have died and more than 400 others have tested positive this year.
