Upset with the management, hundreds of workers staged dharna outside the plant of General Motors in Halol. The workers gathered at the spot and raised slogans against the state government as well. They alleged that their fair demands are being overlooked both by the company and the government. The workers plan to sit on dharna outside the plant every day. “Many of us have been working at this plant for years. The compensation that they are being given is very less. We are demanding more compensation amount as many workers are nearing 40 years of age and it is tough for them to find another job now,” said Bhavesh Jaiswal, Vice President, General Motors Employees Union (GMEU). The company had earlier stated that it has given options of a ‘significantly enhanced separation package or continuity of employment at our Talegaon plant’.
