The case studies the labor problems of the Philips India Limited's (PIL) Salt Lake factory in Kolkatta, India, around 1998 when differences with workers led to declining production and losses. When PIL's management decided to sell the factory, the Union objected and made a counter bid. Highlighting the problems between PIL and its workers, the case examines the reasons behind the conflict.
