Hero MotoCorp workers stage rally over wage hike
Hero Moto Corp workers in Gurgaon, along with colleagues from other plants in the Gurgaon-Manesar-Bawal auto belt, took out a rally from the mini secretariat to the deputy commissioner’s office on Sunday, demanding a wage hike.
The protesters handed a memorandum to the deputy commissioner, seeking early settlement of the dispute pending since August 2012.
Five Hero Moto Corp workers have been on a fast-unto-death since February 28 as several rounds of negotiations over wage hike of 1,200 workers have failed to resolve the deadlock.
Workers want a three-fold hike in monthly wages over a period of three years which amounts to nearly Rs 15,000-16,000.
The company is offering about Rs 6,500 only.
Though production at the plant which rolls out around 7,000 motorcycles has not been hit, a police contingent has been stationed as a precaution.
