Reuters reported that operations at Posco Maharashtra’s plant in MIDC Industrial Area at Tal Mangaon in Raigad district of Maharashtra have been disrupted due to local protests over labour and other issues. A local politician leading the protests Mr Chandrashekhar Khanvilkar told Reuters that “They have blocked employees and goods from entering the plant and will continue until Posco heeds to some of their requests. We are not allowing transport vehicles and workers to enter the factory. We will continue the agitation peacefully until the company agrees to at least a few of our 18 demands, which include giving employment preference to local workers, raising the wages of temporary employees and making them permanent. Their other demands include giving preference to local companies for providing transport and canteen services and garden maintenance.”

The blockage is hampering the supply chain for automakers. Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers wrote to Maharashtra Chief Minister “The blockage is causing disruption in the supply chain and is resulting in shortage of critical auto parts and components. In view of this, production activity at the facilities of vehicle manufacturers in India is likely to come to a standstill.”
