Tata Motor allows Sanand plant workers to form union
Tata Motors has agreed to one of the demands made by the striking workers of the Sanand plant. The workers can form a union but the members must be Tata employees.
The striking workers have also been demanding that all the 28 suspended workers should be reinstated. The company has said that a panel of neutral members will be set up to probe the charges against the suspended workers. The inquiry report will be submitted within six months. However, the workers have not yet agreed to this.
A B Gor, resident additional collector, Ahmedabad said, "In the meeting with district collector on March 11, the company agreed on letting the workers form a union. But Tata put a condition that no outsider can be part of the union. The process for the union registration has been initiated."
Around 400 employees at the Tata Motors' Sanand plant have been on strike since 22 days demanding the reinstatement of 28 suspended workers. According to reports, the suspended workers had attempted to pressurise the management into increasing wages and had threatened the company officials.
The Sanand plant manufactures the Tata Nano and has an annual production capacity of 33.5 lakh units.
