Bengaluru, October 13, 2019: The Unions at HAL have served Notice at all locations to go on indefinite Strike from 14th October 2019 with regard to settlement of Wage Revision effective from 1.1.2017. In this regard, Conciliation proceedings have commenced at all locations and the Labour authorities have advised the Unions to desist from agitation / strike and come to an amicable solution in consultation with Management. Management has also persuaded the Unions to desist from any confrontation / agitation and come forward for discussions with reasonable expectations.

2. Against this backdrop, keeping in view the overwhelming sentiment amongst majority of the employees for amicable and expeditious resolution of the issues and the overall interest of the Organization, Management with a view to conclude the Wage Revision of Workmen conducted meeting with the representatives of the recognized Unions on 12th & 13th October 2019; 11th in the series of meetings held so far. During the first day a stock of the issues settled and a few pending issues was taken. Management has also offered to enhance allowances under Cafeteria system @ 22% for workmen in Scale-1 to 10 & 20% for workmen in Special Scale as against uniform rate of 19% offered earlier and also assured that all the workmen will stand benefitted in terms of allowances on account of introduction of Cafeteria system. On the 2nd day of the negotiation, after lot of deliberations, Management offered revised rate of Fitment benefit @11%. During the negotiations, the Wage negotiation committee also apprised the Unions the ill-effects of resorting to any Strike / agitation jeopardizing the interest of the employees / Organization & the Nation at large.

3. Despite Management’s concerted efforts towards bringing an amicable / early Wage settlement, unions unfortunately have adopted a recalcitrant approach and did not accept the Offer and decided to resort to indefinite Strike; inspite of Management’s appeal not to resort to an indefinite Strike and resolve the issue in a spirit of accommodation.
