Hyundai Motors’ India plant has resumed production amid a section of workers continuing the strike for the third day, a spokesman for the local unit has revealed.

“We have evicted the striking workers from the factory premises and normal production has resumed with those who have come back to work,” the spokesman told Reuters. “The striking workers are in minority.”

Some of the workers at the company’s Chennai plant had stopped work on Monday morning and demanded the reinstatement of the dismissed employees. The strike was in violation of orders as the conciliation was well under way.

The South Korea based car manufacturer currents ranks No.2 in the Indian market, while Maruti Suzuki is perched at number one. The company’s Indian production plant, which employs 10,000 workers, manufactures cars for both Indian and overseas markets.
