With the Indian units of American automobile major General Motors and Korea’s Hyundai Motor initiating steps for smooth transfer of the former’s closed car manufacturing unit at Talegaon to the latter, more than 1,000 laid off GM workers have sought to be part of the proposed transfer deal.

Hyundai Motor India on March 13 signed a term sheet for the potential acquisition of land and buildings and certain machinery and equipment at the Talegaon plant.

The laid off GM workers are peeved that there has been no mention about them in the term sheet.

“The employees have requested that all the permanent employees be transferred to Hyundai Motors and continue their employment. Hence, we request you to issue the necessary orders,” an MLA from Maharashtra had written to Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.
