GM signs landmark three-year wage agreement at Talegaon Plant

Today in Talegaon, Pune, General Motors India and the General Motors Employees union signed a new three-year wage agreement that the automaker says will support further advances in “vehicle manufacturing quality, efficiency, and an improved work environment.”

This marks the first time that both GM India and the union have come to terms and signed an agreement settlement before the expiration of a previous labor agreement.

“We are pleased that we have reached agreement and provided greater certainty for our manufacturing employees at Talegaon,” said Pritpal S Kular, the Vice President Human Resources for GM India. “This goes to show the trust and commitment between the parties is high and we work collaboratively to resolve all issues in an amicable manner.”

We have been able to seal the settlement keeping in mind the competitive wage structure and benefits for the workers at the Talegaon facility.”

GM Employee Union President Tushar Kamthe added, “This timely settlement will revise our wages and help drive quality and enhanced productivity which is beneficial for all employees and will help deliver organizational goals. The agreement has set a new paradigm in the Indian automobile industry and this will pave the way for future co-operative growth.”
