Workers of Hero MotoCorp's Gurgaon plant have confirmed that they will go ahead with their plans to go on a partial strike from Wednesday, slowing down production by over 30 per cent at the factory which makes close to 7,000 two-wheelers every day.
The workers had threatened the same on Monday after talks on a wage deal with the company management broke down.
Sources close to the development said that the next round of negotiations has now been scheduled for Friday, January 25 in the presence of labour department officials.
Over 50 meetings on the wage deal for the approximately 1,400 permanent workers represented by Hero MotoCorp Workers' Union (HMCWU) at the Gurgaon plant have already been held since September last year.
"We will surely go ahead with our plans to slow down production from Wednesday since there has been no positive response from the company management on our demands yet. There is really no option left for us. But we will be peaceful," said a union member.
Hero has been sticking to its guns of offering a Rs 7,500 monthly salary hike to workers at the Gurgaon plant, while HMCWU has asked for at least Rs 15,000 increase.
