Tata Motors ups wages for Sanand workers
In a long pending move, Tata Motors has signed a long-term wage settlement (LTS) with its workers at the Sanand plant for a period of five years with effect from October 2015 to September 2020.

The Sanand plant employs around 500 people and manufactures models including Nano, Tiago and Tigor. Under the terms of the agreement, the total wage package allotted is Rs 16,000 and will be spread across the LTS term uniformly. In addition to the amount, the company has also introduced a performance linked payment, which is accounted as 10% of total salary and will be linked to productivity, quality and safety. The annual bonus linked to performance covering all permanent workers was also agreed upon, Tata Motors said.

Additionally, other benefits like transport and canteen facilities and various other facilities, like rationalisation of leave rules and block closure days up to 24 days per year were mutually agreed, the company added.

“Tata Motors shares cordial working relationships with workers and members of its internal union. We have strived to resolve the LTS issue and are delighted to have resolved the matter for a long term, ensuring our business operations’ competitiveness on one hand and taking care of the well-being of our shop-floor colleagues on the other,” Tata Motors chief human resources offcer Gajendra Chandel said.

“The union, which has been recently formed, is very supportive in ensuring workmen derive maximum benefits through this wage settlement. In the true spirit of the Tata culture, I personally urge all the workers to follow suit,” Chandel added.
