The Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited affiliated unions have resolved to observe strike on September 19 and 20.
A press release issued by the BPCL workers' union on Monday, alleged that the unions had not been taken into confidence while finalising the payment of performance linked
incentive scheme (PLIS) in lieu of ex-gratia for the financial year 2004-05 and the following year, which was highly objectionable and all the unions expressed their strong displeasure.
The unions are also opposed to the unilateral decision of the BPCL management to the benefit of PLIS through the August 2006 salary to the workmen, forcing them to receive it under protest.
The press release said, "the unions demand that the benefit should be calculated on the basis of actual basic pay and dearness allowance drawn by the employees.
