Hero Motocorp workers meet Police Commissioner to protest against the company's autocracy in Gurgaon
A dispute arose between some Hero Motocorp Workers and the management due to the non payment of the worker's salary increment installation. According to a contract, the workers were supposed to be paid an installation in 2013 of their salary, but the non payment of the same led to the argument and subsequently to the firing of three employees.

Protesting this move, the Hero Motocorp Workers Union's 500 workers reached the office of Commissioner of Police Alok Mittal near Civil Lines on Wednesday in the evening. They demanded that the terminated employees be taken back in the company. Alok Mittal assured them of sorting out this matter after consultation with the concerned company's administration and management.

Harish SharmaTalking to, Harish Sharma, President of Hero Motocorp Workers Union, Gurgaon said,'' Last September, there was a dispute between workers and management in the company. In this context, the company started an indoor inquiry on 9 employees. Suddenly, three workers were terminated by the company on August 30, 2014. We condemned the company's judgment but to no avail. There are 5000 workers at present in the company. Now we have boycotted the food served in the company till Saturday to protest the company's autocracy.''

He further added that in order to get justice, they met Police Commissioner Alok Mittal on Wednesday and requested him to get the three terminated workers back to work immediately. Alok Mittal ensured them to sort out this issue by consultation with the Company's administration and the management shortly.

In this series, Ravi Kumar Vice President of the workers union said, ''At the time of dispute between the workers and management, Gurgaon Hero Motocorp Ltd (Manufacturing Plant) Manager Vikram Kasbekar ensured us that this matter will be solved within the company. Suddenly the company violated the norms of government by terminating the three workers without any prior information to them. All workers of three plants Haridwar, Dharuheda and Gurgaon will go on a strike if we don't get justice till now.''

He further added that they are waiting for the Police Commissioner's assurance. The next strategy will be decided if nothing happens in this direction.
