The Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights (IGLH) has put pressure on General Motors CEO Daniel F. Akerson to immediately intervene with local management at the Halol plant in India where hundreds of workers have gone on strike since March 16.

The factory workers are paid just 47 to 92 cents an hour and allegedly suffer from spinal cord injuries due to inhumane and unsafe working conditions. Halol’s management is also accused of violating the Provident Fund Act and regulations outlined in the Industrial Safety and Health Act.
