Tata Motors and workers at the Sanand plant are expected to sign a five-year collective agreement (2015-2020) by June this year. Previously, Tata signed a pioneering pay slip with the Union of Pune Workers in March for a three-year period, from September 2015 to August 2018, during which part of employees` wages were linked to their performance. The entire allocated salary package is 16,000 / – and is evenly distributed over the duration of LTS. In addition to this amount, the company has also introduced a performance payment representing 10% of the total salary and related to productivity, quality and safety. This new performance measure has been well received by the workforce. The annual performance bonus for all permanent employees has also been agreed. In addition, the newly created Union strongly supports the objective of ensuring that workers derive maximum benefits from this wage system. In the true spirit of Tata culture, I personally invite all workers to follow this example. The Long-Term Pay Slip (LTS) between Tata Motors Sanand Union and Tata Motors was mutually agreed and was signed today for a period of 5 years, from October 2015 to September 2020. Regarding the issue of the collective agreement in the Dharwad factory, where the company does not have a union, the company spokesman said: “As far as Dharwad is concerned, we have the works council, which has equal representatives of workers and management. This works council meets regularly, at least once a month, discusses and manages all day-to-day affairs, including working conditions, etc.” Tata Motors on Friday resolved a long-standing wage comparison dispute by signing a pact with workers at its Sanand plant, according to which each permanent employee will receive an increase of 16,000 rupees, which will be distributed uniformly over the next 5 years. The management of Tata Motors and the Tata Motors Employees Union of Pune signed the LTS on Monday. This is the first time that negotiations have been conducted jointly for the installation of commercial vehicles (CVBU) and the installation of passenger cars (PVBU) in Pune. Traditionally, there used to be a six-month delay between the two collective agreements.
According to the collective agreement, each permanent employee of Tata Motors` Sanand plant in Gujarat is expected to receive an increase of 16,000 rupees which will be distributed uniformly over the next 5 years Tata Motors` Indian factories are located in Jamshedpur in Jharkhand, Pune in Maharashtra, Pantnagar in Uttarakhand, Sanand in Gujarat and Dharwad in Karakanat. The company has separate long-term collective agreements – usually three to four years – with the recognized unions in each of the factories. “We have started discussions in Luknov, where the agreement expires next month, and we expect it to be concluded in a cordial manner as in the past,” a company spokesman said in an email to Moneycontrol. . . .
