The management and workers of Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd. have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for settling the workers’ wage revision with 12% fitness benefits.

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 Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd., 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.
