GRIEVANCE-CASE STUDY Mr Roshan,a professionally qualified engineer.had been working in one of the plants of a giant multi-product company as assistant plant manager.After having worked for 5 years,he was promoted to the position of Plant Manager.Recently he has been transferred to another plant which is facing difficulty in meeting production targets & budgetary standards.He is highly ambitious & authority oriented energetic person.He strongly believes that to solve the problem,rigid & close controls should be exercised.He makes decisions on his own & gets them implemented by exercising authority of his position.
Mr Roshan gave directive to each work station for increasing productivity by 10% & reducing costs by 5%.He monitors the situation closely & has finally dismissed two supervisors who failed in meeting production targets without giving patient hearing to them.He has promoted four senior operators to the position of supervisors.Ultimately this style of functioning has produced desired results.Productivity has increased & production cost has also been brought under control.However the employees are unhappy because of excessive pressures on them & because of fear of losing their jobs.
