Govt working on policy to improve conditions of unorganised workforce: Min

Minister of State for Labour and Employment (Independent Charge), Santosh Kumar Gangwar, has said that the government was working on a policy to improve the working and living conditions of the 40 crore labour force in the unorganized sector. The policy which will incorporate the suggestions of state labour ministers will emphasise on the health and social security of workers to optimize their contribution to the national economy.

Addressing the 84th Annual General Meeting of the All India Organisation of Employers (AIOE), an affiliate of FICCI, Gangwar said that harmonious industrial relations and social security for workers were the cornerstones for sustainable economic growth. In their context, the Minister said that the Code on Wages was being deliberated upon by the Standing Committee of Parliament and is expected to submit its report soon.

Gangwar also presented the AIOE National Award for Outstanding Industrial Relations (2016-17) to Pricol Ltd., Coimbatore. The first runner-up award was given to Harrisons Malayalam ltd., Kochi and the second runner-up to ITC Paper Boards and Speciality Paper Division, Bhadrachalam.

Dagmar Walter, Director, ILO DWT for South Asia and Country Office for India, said that ILO's India Decent Work Programme was currently being finalized. The programme will set out the agenda for quality jobs with practices that lead to a greener world.

She said that for developing skills to meet the requirements of future jobs in India, there was a need to impart and imbibe a culture of adaptability and empathy. She laid emphaisis on prior-learning and a clear focus on cognitive and problem-solving skills.

Gaurav Swarup, President, AIOE, pointed out that reforms in the Industrial Disputes Act, 1947, need immediate attention. This can be done through bringing in an industrial relations code, which does away with the need for prior permission of the government for rationalisation measures and introducing a provision for strike notice. Also, contract labour legislation, the most contentious issue today, needs a re-look.
