Hero fears row over hikes may hit production
Sources said that the latest offer of a hike of R7,500 was made at a tripartite meeting of the management, workers and officials from the Gurgaon additional labour commissioner’s office on Wednesday evening. In fact, at the meeting the company increased its offer from the previous amount of around R6,500, which was similar to what was given to workers at its other plant at nearby Dharuhera in 2011.

We have been holding talks with members of the Union at our Gurgaon plant with the hope of a reasonable and sustainable settlement. It is, therefore, not appropriate at this point of time to get into specific details with regard to the ongoing talks, until we reach an amicable conclusion.”
