According to the management of the company, this strike is a complete violation of the agreement signed by the workers with the company in the presence of Haryana government officials on 1st Oct, 2011.

The management of the company is concerned about the safety of plant and machinery as well as those employees who are against the strike. So far, the company has rescued around 450 such employees with the help of police. These employees were held by the striking workers. The workers which include regular, contractual, apprentices and trainees are again on strike demanding casual workers and another 44 permanent employees who were suspended during the earlier 33-day-long standoff be reinstated.
