In what it could be a shocker, 400 workers working at the Bajaj Auto's Waluj manufacturing plant tested positive for the respiratory disease raising many fears about the spread of the virus.
Following this, the Bajaj Auto Workers' Union demanded the management to close the plant temporarily as a precautionary measure, with the employees are fearing to enter the plant to render their services.
Bajaj Auto Workers' Union President Thengade Bajirao said the talks with the management are going on and stressed about the shut down of the plant for a few days to see that the virus is not spread further.
He went to say that, if the management is thinking about production loss, they will work extra time and on holidays too for compensating the loss that occurs during the temporary shut down period.
Despite all the measures taken by the management, the cases are increasing rapidly. So far, more than 400 infections and seven fatalities were reported in the manufacturing plant.
