A bearer of HeroMotoCorp Workers (Gurgaon) said, “We will not co-operate with engineers on the shop-floor from tomorrow. We will just do our individual work. This would slow down production processes. The workers at have also said they would support our agitation.” Over 11,000 permanent and contract workers across both the units are sporting black armbands to press ahead with the demand for better at the facility.

“The management was concerned that if they our significantly more than Rs 6,500 given in wage increase to our colleagues at Dharuhera, there would be protests. But the workers there understand that living conditions are more expensive in Gurgaon. They are supporting us unconditionally”, added the member at Gurgaon.

The workers at have been demanding an increase of over Rs 15,000 in over a three-year period. In the latest round of negotiations on Monday held at the additional labour commissioner’s office on Monday, the company management had offered Rs 7,500 in wage settlement.

"As stated earlier, we will continue to engage with the workers towards achieving the objective of reaching at an amicable solution, without allowing ourselves to be coerced into decisions governed by pressure tactics. As the industry leader, we will take prudent and well-deliberated decision which will be in the best interest of all our workers as well as for the larger good of the industrial environment in the region”, said a spokesperson at Hero MotoCorp.

The workers at Hero MotoCorp have been asking for a similar increment as at Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India’s (HMSI) Manesar unit, where a 50% wage of Rs 14,770 in monthly salary was announced recently.

Hero MotoCorp employs around 1200 permanent workers and 4000 contract workers at its facility. The average salary of a permanent worker at currently is around Rs 32,000 which goes up to as much as Rs 38,000 for more experienced employees.

In keeping with this spirit, our welfare measures and benefits have been the benchmark in the industry. And we will strive to reach at a reasonable, sustainable and sensible settlement."
