Bonus disappointing: Harshvardhan

Describing the bonus agreement in Tata Motors as disappointing, Telco Workers Union official Harsh Vardhan said that the 10.1 percent bonus agreement is a fraud on the employees of Tata Motors.

He said that there is dissatisfaction among the employees regarding this bonus agreement. No employee is able to openly oppose the management due to fear. But internally there is dissatisfaction among the employees regarding this agreement.

He said that Tata Motors has made a profit of Rs 5000 crore.

“ After so many years, the company has given dividend to the shareholders. In such a situation, why injustice to the employees? Only 10.1 percent bonus is being given to the employees whose hard work brought a profit of Rs 5000 crore to the company,” he questioned.
