    Default Bajaj Auto faces labor trouble: xBhp News

    Bajaj Auto is once again in the news with the Labour Unions of the Chakan Plant, threatening to strike this month.

    Bajaj Auto's independent labour union, the Vishwa Kalyan Kamgar Sanghatana (VKKS), has threatened to strike at the main Chakan plant of the two wheel manufacturer, starting on the 28th of April 2014. The VKKS claims that the company is not using its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) funds for the workers. On Monday, the workers served a notice to the management of the company, that they would stop work on the 28th. There are around 2000 workers in the Chakan plant, with the KTM, Kawasaki motorcycles manufactured and assembled here. The premium range of Bajaj the Pulsar and Avenger are also produced at the Chakan plant.

    Dilip Pawar, president of VKKS -

    "The company has continued to harass workers and the situation is the same. Also, it is not using its corporate social responsibility funds for workers. Our demand is we must get a significant share of this fund."
    Kailas Zanjari, vice-president (motorcycle division)

    "If the strike happens, the union will be responsible for the losses. We are capable of running the production line smoothly. Like last year, we will manage production from other units. The production will not be hampered at any cost. Last year, the workers had suffered huge financial losses due to the strike. We are really concerned for our workers and do not want to make them to suffer."
    Last year in June, the labour union in the Chakan plant had threatened a 50 day strike, which was later called off unconditionally. Rajiv Bajaj on that occasion, had said that he would let the plant be closed for 500 days but not give in to the demands of the workers.

    There goes the dream of 200ss, 400cs, 400ss, a bit further ahead.

    Don't try to fix me, I'm broke so I don't work

    Dont worry brother, Only production gets affected majorly in these kinds of strikes, not the R&D.. AFAIK, 400cs & 400ss aren't even into production trials which is common from months before any mass production in automotive sector.

    Wow!!! Seriously??? These workers have sent a notice to the company asking to allotment of Bajaj Auto shares at Rs. 10/- per share (last year it was Rs.1/- demand). They seem to have dreams of becoming lakhpati over night (current share price of Bajaj is over Rs.1000/-). Seriously, where does this sense of entitlement come from? Why do they believe such leaders who lead them down the path of ruin?

    From greed, damn unions are misused.. earlier they were created to protect labour from dictatorship management, but now only for self interest..

    Unhappy Re: Bajaj Auto faces labor trouble: xBhp News

    I went to the Bajaj Auto Chakan plant myself, as a lecturer on an industrial tour with my students. I won't comment anything. I will leave it upto you guys to decide if the below facilities are ok or not:


    1. Its a typical 8 hour job, with a certain break too.
    2. Canteens with HD TV's showing cricket matches/ most other channels, excellent food, rest rooms, all medical and entertainment facilities, marriage/ birthday celebration facilities, free bus facility, etc, etc...
    3. PLUS A minimum salary of around Rs. 25-30k for the basic line engineer, and even more than this as they proceed up the ranks, is this a less salary by any definition?


    My query is, why don't they take pride in doing the job? The job of making beautiful & fast machines that a prospective owner would love to ride later!

    My opinion is that I would love to do such a job, even at 12k, just for the satisfaction of it...


    EDIT: I guess everything is not about employee's own wish to work. "Vested interests" is probably the word.

    Am in such job and am satisfied.. you get to ride bikes before launch, you get to see & do engineering.. only thing one can get displeased is when some moron stops your work & it happens a lot in these industries.
