Hero Moto union leaders to go on hunger strike
HMCWU wants a Rs 14,000-15,000 monthly wage hike (monthly average salary currently is Rs 46,000) to match recent hikes given by Maruti Suzuki and Honda Motorcycle to their workers in the same region. However, the company has reportedly offered a hike of only around Rs 8,500 a month.
The Gurgaon plant makes about 8,000 scooters and bikes a day across three assembly lines. The factory had last seen a strike in 2006 over wage issues and demand for regularising contract workers.
While HMCWU has threatened to strike work several times in the last month, till now it has only resorted to a production slowdown for two days in January, apart from holding a silent protest in the same month when the workers boycotted company-provided snacks.
