Bajaj Auto employees union on Sunday deferred the proposed strike from Monday by two weeks saying that workers have decided to give more time to the management to consider their charter of demands.

“We have decided to defer our proposed strike at Chakan plant by two weeks. We have conveyed our decision to the management,” Bajaj Auto employee union president Dilip Pawar said.

Pawar said the decision was taken keeping in view the interest of employees and also grant more time to the management to consider the union’s demand.

The union, on April 14, had served a notice with a list of demands, which include allocation of CSR funds for education of employees’ children, setting up a museum in the name of company’s founder Jamnalal Bajaj within a year and allotment of shares at a discounted price.

The company had rubbished all the demands and said it would ensure that production is not hit if the union makes any attempt to disrupt it.
