The revised wages will be notified after the board of directors ratifies it and a tripartite settlement is signed before labour authorities at different locations of the HAL, it said.

It envisages wage revision, productivity improvement and other related matters.

The workers went on a strike in October to press for 15% fitment benefits and up to 35% benefit in perks for various scales.
