New Delhi, June 12: In the first signs of a resolution to the over week-long strike at its Manesar plant, Maruti Suzuki India today said it is willing to recognise the new union -- the main demand of the workers.


The workers also said they are willing to end the stir provided 11 of their sacked colleagues are reinstated.

"One of the possibilities is to have individual local plant unions with an umbrella governing council that has members taken from the local plant's union," MSI Managing Executive Officer (Administration) S Y Siddiqui said.

It is understood that the governing council will take part in charting out future company policies in order to avoid worker unrest.

The company, however, was silent on the demand for reinstating the sacked workers, although sources said it was unlikely that they would be taken back. PTI
