The workers' strike at the Manesar plant of the country's largest car-maker Maruti Suzuki India continued for the sixth day on Thursday and production continues to be completely stopped.

'The situation is the same as yesterday,' a company spokesperson told PTI.

Around 2,000 workers at the plant have been on strike since Saturday, resulting in a production loss of about 4,200 units till yesterday and the value of the loss is estimated to be around 210 crore.

The striking workers are demanding the recognition of a new union -- Maruti Suzuki Employees Union (MSEU) -- formed by those working at the Manesar plant, among other things.

The Manesar plant rolls out about 1,200 units every day in two shifts.

The factory produces hatchbacks Swift and A-Star and sedans DZiRE and SX4.

The company's shares were trading at 1,215.30 apiece in the morning on the Bombay Stock Exchange, down 0.88%.
