Yamaha workers at UP plant stage protest seeking wage hike

The temporary workers were demanding increase in their salaries on the lines of the wage agreement that the company had recently signed with its permanent employees.

In a statement, the company said it has recently concluded the three years wage settlement agreement with the trade unions representing the permanent workers of Surajpur and Faridabad plants.

"As a token of gesture, we also announced some increment for the temporary workers, that is over and above the increment mandated as per the minimum wages notified by the state government from time to time. A few temporary workers at the Surajpur Plant expressed dissatisfaction and staged a protest demanding higher increment," the company said.

The company has alleged that "few temporary workers, affiliated to the rival group of the current union body, are instigating the majority and are responsible for the disturbance".

"Around 30 per cent temporary workers reported to work in the morning shift while during evening shift, 70 per cent people have resumed duty," the Japanese firm said.

India Yamaha Motor has three manufacturing facilities at Surajpur, Faridabad in Haryana and Kanchipuram in Tamil Nadu.

The company caters to domestic as well as international markets through these three plants.
