Tata Motors’ unions express support for Ratan Tata

Ahead of Tata Motors’ crucial board meeting on Monday, two unions of the company representing around 16,000 employees have written to the management expressing their support to Ratan Tata in the ongoing spat with ousted Tata Sons Chairman Cyrus Mistry.

In a letter to Tata Motors CEO and Managing Director Guenter Butschek, Tata Motors Employees Union, Pune expressed “deep concern” over the rift between Tata Sons and the leadership of Tata group firms. “Moreover, the once cordial relations between Tata Motors Pune plant management and the employees have taken a downward turn since the last 14 months over various negotiable issues,” said the letter in an indirect dig at the company’s leadership under Mr. Mistry’s chairmanship.

In a letter to the plant head of Tata Motors’ Jamshedpur unit, Telco Workers Union termed Ratan Tata as “our another great leader” and invoked his saying “if you want to walk fast walk alone, but if you want to walk far, walk together” to express their support. — PTI
