Nokia spared long India strike

Nokia has been saved from prolonged industrial action at its Tamil Nadu plant, after the state government intervened in a wage dispute between the handset giant and factory workers.
 
Employees at the Sriperumbudur factory went on strike yesterday, demanding better wage terms and the reinstatement of workers who were suspended by Nokia, Business Standard said
 
However, the strike has now been called off after a meeting between the Tamil Nadu government's minister of labor, Nokia management and employee union NIEPU.
 
Nokia told the Standard it had reached a long-term wage settlement with the union, and offered to revoke the contested employee suspensions.
 
A total of 63 workers were suspended in January on “disciplinary grounds,” after earlier industrial action at the plant.
 
The Sriperumbudur plant is one of Nokia's largest in India, judging by export value.
