Hero MotoCorp's Gurgaon unit workers have decided to go on hunger strike from February 28 to demand higher wages. Members of Hero MotoCorp Workers' Union (HMCWU, Gurgaon unit) had taken this decision in a meeting on February 26 with members of the company's Dharuhera facility.
Two-wheeler manufacturer's workers at the Gurgaon unit have been asking for the wage hike from past two months. They have been sporting black arm-bands and have stopped taking tea and snacks offered by the company expressing their protest. The employees are demanding an increment of around Rs 15,000 in monthly salary, spread over a period of three years, but the management is reluctant to increase wages beyond Rs 7,500-9,000 in monthly settlement.
