Employees feel disappointed about lack of communication by Honda Motors

Gurugram: The Honda motors finally issued an official statement and stated that owing to a slowdown they were trimming down the strength of the contractual employees whose term was over. No stranger to these tough conditions the sacked employees however feel disappointed that there has been no clear communication and compensation by the management which has now led to their uncertain future.

Most of the sacked employees have requested the management that they should be paid a full package of Rs one to two lakh so that they can sustain their livelihood. It is important to note that the average salary of contractual employees is Rs 14,000 and maximum Rs 20,000.

"Most of our colleagues have been out of jobs for four months. Even though we have been assured by the Honda management that our financial needs will be taken care of. No such efforts as of now has been done," said Ravinder one of the contractual employees who was shunted out.

On Monday the Honda motors which is one of the leading manufacturers of motorcycles in the country laid off 250 employees from its maintenance units.

According to sources, the company had earlier too laid off over 700 employees from its Manesar plant. With automobile sales not picking up, the brunt of the falling sales is being faced in terms of hundreds of job losses that are continuing to date in various auto majors.

The recent case cutting down the workdays in Maruti factories of Gurugram and Manesar and its adverse effects on job losses in auto ancillary units reflected how weak economic quarters were hurting the automobile industry.

The Gurugram-Manesar belt has more than 650 ancillary companies that produce automotive components for the three of the largest automobile companies based here —Maruti Suzuki Ltd, Hero Motocorp Ltd, and Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Pvt Ltd (HMSI).

The total number of people employed in this manufacturing hub is around 6 lakh, according to the labour department data. The issue of job losses was one of the major poll planks that were raised in the recently concluded elections for the state.
