The ongoing worker’s strike at country’s largest car maker Maruti Suzuki’s Manesar plant, which entered into its sixth day on Thursday, is now threatening to spread to company's Gurgaon plant. On Thursday, a panel of workers in the area warned to join the agitation if the demands of their colleagues are not met.

In a statement given to PTI, AITUC Gurgaon District Secretary Harjeet Grover (also the General Secretary of HMSI Employees Union) stated that a joint committee including representatives of all trade unions and various elected members from unions in different companies, including Honda Motorcycle, Hero Honda, and Scooter India (HMSI) and Rico Auto, has been formed to support the MSI workers. He added, "We are concerned that an industrial dispute takes place which has the capacity to hamper growth (of automobile industry)."
Earlier this week, Maruti Workers went on strike demanding the formation of a new union at the Manesar plant. Maruti has lost production of over 4200 units due to this strike.
