Letters written to some 7500 Workers / Managers / Union Leaders, following a period of strike / Go slow / Murders (1979 - 1987), at Mumbai factory of Larsen & Toubro Ltd. This direct / open / honest communication led to a remarkable atmosphere of trust between Workers and Management, which, in turn, increased productivity at 3% per year (ave).
When year ended on 30th Sept., we hope, the production people must have reached their targets. But for absenteeism control (reduction), you have time till end December to achieve your targets! And I hope you are all working very very hard, with less than 2 months to go !
If I remember correctly you achieved 0.8% reduction in 1985 (1.6% for P-PACK), and you had set a target of another 0.8% reduction in 1986.
We will meet in Jan' 87 (3 p.m. on 9.1.87 - C4 conf. room) to review. Each of you will make a quick, identical presentation - and also reveal your target & action plan for 1987. Have we reached a stage of "participation" where we can invite Union - office bearers to this meeting ?
