Hyundai Motor India said it has signed a wage settlement agreement with the workers of its Chennai plant, under which the technicians will get an average salary increase of Rs 25,200 per month spread over three years. The three-year wage settlement will be implemented with retrospective effect from April 2018 and will remain effective until March 2021, Hyundai Motor India Ltd (HMIL) said in a statement. The wage settlement agreement was signed between the company's management and the recognised union, the UUHE (United Union of Hyundai Employees), it added.
"As per the agreement, technicians will receive an average salary increase of Rs 25,200 per month spread over three years," the company said. Technicians will receive 55 per cent of the increased salary in the first year, 25 per cent in the second year and 20 per cent in the third year.
