Bajaj Auto and plant unions reach wage hike agreement
Bajaj Auto Limited reached a settlement with unionized workers of Vishwakalyan Kamgar Sanghatana (VKS) at the company’s plant in Chakan near Pune, thus bringing to an end a long standing unrest between management and union of Bajaj Auto Limited.
This new agreement brings to an end nearly 18 months of strikes, unrest and violence at the company’s mail plant in Chakan, Pune. However, the demand for near free allotment of Bajaj shares of 500 shares per employee has been turned down.
The wage agreement also includes regular attendance bonus of INR 480 which has been revised. 50% of this that is INR 240 will be merged while the rest will be divided in weekly payments of INR 60. This results in a minimum wage hike of INR 10,280 and a maximum wage hike of INR 11,520.
