Initial wage negotiations at Hero inconclusive
"We will continue to engage with the workers towards achieving this objective of reaching at an amicable solution, without allowing ourselves to be coerced into decisions governed by external pressure tactics."
The nearly 1,200 permanent workers, under the aegis of HMCWU, are at present observing silent protest by wearing black badges and not taking tea and snacks provided by the company to press for their demand.
They have, however, ruled out going for any strike or slowdown in production immediately.
When asked if the workers would resort to strike, Singh said: "At present we are protesting very peacefully. However, if nothing concrete happens in this week, then we will decide our future course of action accordingly."
Although company officials have so far declined to share details of current salaries of the workers, industry sources said the average gross salary of a worker at Hero MotoCorp's Gurgaon plant stands at around Rs 46,000 per month.
