Eicher Motors says labour strife hurt Royal Enfield production


(Reuters) - Eicher Motors Ltd said on Wednesday a strike at one of its facilities in southern India led to a slump in production of 25,000 motorcycles in September-October, after a part of its workforce "stayed away" from work.
Workers at the facility of Eicher Motors, best known for its Royal Enfield motorcycles, saw a part of their workforce walk out last month demanding higher pay, job security and a right to form unions to collectively bargain.
The facility in Oragadam, situated in Tamil Nadu, remained operational through October, and a majority of the workforce continues to report to work, Eicher said.
