In this context it is necessary to cite the example of China. Hence we are not to accept the package of law reforms put forward by the advocates of globalisation.

Therefore. destruction of industrial peace and loss of production resulting in industrial loss as workers deprived of their rights will have to resist. Reform of labour laws is fear based. Workers are protected well in the event of unavoidable retrenchment or closure. by adequate compensation and provision for re-employment. Hence this capitalist ideology will necessarily lead to chaos. Globalisation has placed workers in a highly insecure situation. During the evidence taking process of the Commission in various places in the country. What is contemplated is only a limited right of the workers to look into the employer’s honesty in taking action adversely affecting the interests of workers. employers’ organizations submitted that China should be taken as a model for labour law reforms in India. but had reverse impact on the economy. and should have an opportunity to ventilate their claims and objections.

Special economic zones are exempted from labour laws. flexibility means right of management to “adjust” their labour force from time to time according to their whims and fancy in the name of “changing needs of the industry” or “to meet the exigencies caused by genuine economic reasons” or “in the best interest of the undertaking” etc. Workers cannot be silent spectators and put their neck as scapegoats to such foolish ideas of “saving” the industries. In fact the Deputy Labour Minister and other officials in China told us that there are no exemption to MNCs or any sector from labour laws. Instead of saying “we want to run industry” they demand “we want closure of industry and retrenchment of workers”. which was found to be true after our visit to Shenzen.

Blaming others for one’s own fault is now the psychology of employers who are blaming workers. workers should not be asked to sacrifice for the fault of employer. and has come out with the finding that about 65% of the cause is contributed by management failure. In the west they have more capital and less number of workers. The reverse process is totally unjustifiable. This is a pointer to the need to reform the attitude or skills of management to improve industrial health. Contribution by labour or strike is only 3%. It is a paradox how these two situations will go together. VB. Implication of repeal of Ch. ‘hire and fire’ slogan etc. Still they raise meaningless and deceptive slogans that “these are for employment generation”. The so-called advocates of reforms have to explain this. VB also should be made applicable to all establishments to which general labour laws apply. VB. Ch. the closure would be very easy. the employers can reduce the strength of workers below the minimum level and overcome other legal restrictions also. Our National economy badly requires employment-generating technologies. Worker’s participation in management should be a rule. Those who are less competitive are getting sick. At present workers have no say when they face gross mismanagement in the industry. the only point worth considering is that there is inordinate delay and hurdles in the permission procedure under Ch. closure and lay off. Inhuman attitudes like that of the erstwhile feudal lords have come back to Indian employers in the form of hire and fire etc. By permitting retrenchment. In India it is otherwise. Removing the restrictions on retrenchment is to accept the principle of “hire and fire” as demanded by the Employer’s organisations. Considering the large army of unemployed in the waiting. Permission procedure under Ch. Blaming workers is escapism for the management associations. If no restrictions are placed on either lay off or retrenchment. These are all done when unemployment insurance is not an inseparable package with retrenchment. The principle shall be that labour laws should have uniform applicability. This problem 155 . VB By proposing to raise the limit of Chapter VB to 300 workers it is encouraging closure in majority of industries. Sickness is not due to labour laws. Any exemption or deviation will only be disadvantageous to workers. The employers have got to make out a case against the existing labour laws by saying that the industrial sickness in attributed to defective or even over protective labour laws or the agitation of workers.

Ground realities The employers’ organizations want to give legal and social status to contract labour in the name of globalisation. Insecurity brought by contract system is not the method to create efficiency. This is a clear abuse that is to be totally curtailed and penalized even though some legislations contains certain provisions. Commission has rightly recommended that after 2 years of working a worker should be treated as permanent worker. new methods of exploitations like contract labour system is spreading. If the Government within 60 days of the receipt of application does not grant permission. 2. Many brilliant employers in the country perform this. which is slowly gaining respect in our country also. The direction should be to do away with modern method of human trafficking in the name of contract labour as pointed out by Supreme Court in Gujarat Electricity Board case. the permission will be deemed to have been granted. as exploitation of worker becomes easy. Nothing. I do not agree with any of these proposals. not even globalisation is a justification for such anti-human concepts. Economic efficiency is not labour cost alone It is a wrong idea to say that “in the fast changing scenario and changes in technology and management to meet the challenges of the same. VB is to be repealed progressively 4. The procedure can be simplified and time limit can be prescribed without sacrificing the objectives of the provisions in Ch. and organization must have the flexibility to adjust the number of its work force based on ‘economic efficiency’ ”. Varying scale of compensation for sick units and profit making units 6. Ch. The discussion on the ill effects of globalisation squarely applies to this issue as well. there cannot be a fixed number of posts in any organization for all time to come. Their perception militates against other factors that influence economic efficiency. for even beyond 10 years. 156 . Total removal of prior permission for lay off and retrenchment. 3. Contract Labour (Para. Raising the limit from 100 workers to 300 for applicability for closure. contract workers etc. Dictum laid down in this case is not overruled even in the recent SAIL case. Extracting labour out of worker without pain is an art and a part of management skill. Conclusion So the following proposals are devoid of any rationale-1. According to unsuccessful employers economic efficiency means nothing but labour cost. temporary workers. Trade unions have pointed out that from the point of view of employers the advantages in employing contract labour are innumerable likea) low wages (in many cases paying less than minimum wages and employing workmen on very low wages compared to that of permanent workers). Other wise we will be in the primitive or feudal philosophy of least concern for human side of an issue. badali. Post facto permission after 1 month of lay off in establishments with more than 300 workers 5. The ground realities are that the employers favour contract labour.REPORT OF THE NATIONAL COMMISSION ON LABOUR has to be addressed in a different angle. But in many industries workers are retained in the name as casual workers. 53-55) Human side of the problem In the place of old methods of exploitations. This method is a part of the fundamental philosophy of exploitation of capitalism. VB. Job security is an important right of the worker accepted for a long period of time.

and also for the other exploited categories to be abolished like child labour. Abolition of contract labour should not be replaced by encouragement of contract labour. Both are part and parcel of the same activity. It is not a one-way traffic. Non-core activities also cover a vast field of industrial activity and if a distinction is made. etc. it 157 . a large number of employees will loose the existing protection under the law. Work culture There has to be a detailed mention about work culture to change the misconception among employers. Some of the exceptions to equal pay shall be seniority. There is no justification to make any new category in perennial (permanent) jobs viz. coercion and fear of insecurity. part time. This differentiation should be dispensed with. The trend should be to progressively convert contract works to regular work. Hence contract labour is a system that should be progressively abolished on the background of ground realities. merit. contract labour etc. overtime etc. Because the SAIL judgement has failed to consider the realities of situation. badli.REPORT OF THE NATIONAL COMMISSION ON LABOUR b) c) d) e) f) non necessity of payment of fringe and other benefits etc. If we adopt a different approach than one recognised by SAIL judgement.

Equal pay and benefits Equal pay for equal work should be the basic principle that should apply to all types of exploited categories of workers including women. Study group of our Commission had rightly recommended that the body vested with the responsibility for making recommendation on abolition of contract labour should also be empowered to order absorption by principal employer such number of contract labour as is considered just and reasonable. casual etc. temporary. Payment includes all benefits incidental to the particular work enjoyed by regular workers. Hence the words “equal wages” should be substituted by “equal wages and all other benefits”. This is legalising an illegal activity. badli. apprentice. The fear that if we do not follow the principles laid down in SAIL judgement it would result into defeating the judgement is baseless. migrant labour. There is nothing wrong for the Commission to independently looking at the problem and reverse the dictum of the SAIL judgement. so that the employer will not engage contract labour for the purpose of monetary gain. Work culture is mistaken as worker’s culture alone and increased working hours and decreased holidays. The terminology of core and non-core sector is thoroughly unrealistic.

Then it is also possible to bring about uniformity in daily and weekly hours of work and holidays (Para. In the name of work culture you cannot expect workers to be workaholic. Advocates of flexibility of working hours want to increase it. This vision has not yet dawned in the minds our reformers. Squeezing a worker by overwork will not help the industry ultimately. First National Commission has suggested that working hours should be reduced from 48 hours to 40 hours. is a basic necessity of human beings. 17). This Commission should not put reverse gear to this proposal. Working Hours Commission has rightly attempted to bring about codification and uniformity in labour laws. Work culture is an attitude that cannot be enforced through legislations. Even in the existing framework. labour displacing planning or technology is suitable. unemployment increased and work has decreased. 62). (The Chinese law on this aspect is appended herewith). Mechanistic view looks upon man as a part of machine. working overtime. Machines and computers are to assist human beings and not to displace them. are working successfully. Work culture should start from above. Leisure. Work Culture is nothing but attitude of all the partners of the industrial activity and not concerned with merely working hours or holidays of workers. It is shameful that many of the Central statutes and some State statutes still prescribe 9 hours working per day. Even machines and computers gets heated or tired up by over work. The regulation of the State Council of China governing working hours and weekly rest for workers was adopted on 17-2-1995 (Act No. Modern technology and working hours When technology advances the fruits of technology should be shared by employer in the form of profits. In reality what happens 158 .REPORT OF THE NATIONAL COMMISSION ON LABOUR includes employer’s attitude as well. Japanese Government immediately shifted their policy by encouraging workers to avail holidays and carrying on the propaganda about the benefit of taking holidays and spending time with families. in banking sector ATM and 24 hours banking etc. Arrival of a new machine should help workers to reduce their working hours and burden rather than displacing the workers out of work. which again in the name of changed circumstances. Where as in countries like Japan where there is shortage of appropriate manpower. it applies to all establishments including Governmental agency. that again on the plea of global competition and technological changes. Law cannot and should not compel workers to be workaholic by over work. encashment of holiday or extra wages. nor become their masters. working hours are fixed at 8 hours a day and 40 hours a week. We cannot expect our workers to have psychological abnormality like “Karoshi” (death by overwork) prevalent in Japan. According to Article 6. Article 2 says. As per Article 3. subject to regulations of the concerned State. 8 hours working per day is universally accepted. Only contented and satisfied workers can contribute to the development of industry. Instead of reducing holidays (by saying that Indian workers have addiction to holidays). Basic principle that we have to bear in mind is that the level of human endurance and physical tolerance does not change or increase. and consumers in the form of reduction in prices. rather than being a right. worker in the form of higher wages and reduction in working hours. It is something against common sense to connect work culture with working hours and holidays. only in an emergency shall these working hours be extended. China has shown a good example by accepting maximum 8 hours of work per day uniformly for all employment including Government jobs so that extra work can be assigned to the large number of unemployed people waiting for job. we should encourage additional employment as a part of our labour-intensive planning suitable for a country like India. But recently in Japan due to recession.

e. Maximum spread over. According to Article 7 of the Chinese law mentioned earlier (Act 17) both Saturdays and Sundays are weekly rest days. In order to reduce stress and strain. where people have to travel long distance to polling station and also to the workplace. the labour intensive approach requires the overtime work to be distributed to more people. and to generate more employment it is necessary to reduce working hours. Commission’s recommendation for reducing polling days to half a day holiday is not suitable for Indian village conditions. Without a scientific study on ergonomics. Interval of rest shall be one hour. Still employers demand flexible working hours i. it is dangerous to suggest this idea. So there are 104 weekly holidays in China apart from other holidays and leaves. Conclusion Hence I request the Commission to recommend that1. labour intensive planning and labour intensive deployment of labour. so that worker be exposed to continuous radiation. 62). IT industry IT industry also poses health and mental problems to those who work continuously before computers. These high social objectives should not be forgotten while considering the demand of the employers for flexibility. 5 days a week as in China should be introduced in our country also in all establishments. 5. instead of same worker doing overtime work it should be distributed as regular work to the large army of unemployed in our country. 62) China has more holidays. Thus in spite of more holidays and lesser working hours China could claim that it is progressing very fast in industrial and other sectors. Holidays (Para. For industrial establishments weekly hours should be reduced from 48 hours to 40 hours a week and for commercial establishments from 48 hours to 36 1/2 to 40 hours a week. 2. increase in working hours. (See the Chinese law appended hereto). This is the reason why the trade unions and workers are opposed to thoughtless mechanisation or modernisation. 3. Monthly and quarterly ceiling on overtime work is prescribed with a specific objective. 159 . A new branch of ergonomics is to be introduced in labour laws. The radiation from computers adversely affects the health of such worker. so that there can be flexibility in remaining holidays. 4.REPORT OF THE NATIONAL COMMISSION ON LABOUR is that by the introduction of mechanisation or modern technology employer reduces the number of employees thereby reaping more profits for him and adding to unemployment in general in the society without any benefit to the society by way of reduction of price. It also affects the worker by way of muscular-skeleton diseases (MSD) and monotony. Overtime India is a country that requires labour intensive technology. Attempt can be to ensure a fixed number of working days per year say 265 days of work which is to be done by every employee. Secondly. overtime work etc. especially with regard to the newly developing I T industry. Workers should not be subject to overwork exploiting their craze for money (Para. should not be changed adversely to the workers. Maximum of 8 hours daily working to be made uniform especially in many of the central statutes. So instead of same person working overtime.

Outside leadership Trade union movement has progressed because of the initiative of outside leaders. b. It is not correct to say that “upgrading the criteria for eligibility for registration and recognition will be an incentive for consolidation and strengthening workers unity”. Bargaining agent (Para. Accumulation and encashment of earned leave if any should be without any ceiling and up to the option of the worker.26) At the same time the recommendation to continue legal provision for political fund is some thing encouraging out side political involvement. Division of collective and individual disputes between sole bargaining agent and other Trade Unions also further adds to the complexity. c. Trade Unions should have a say. Other complicated procedures of determination of sole bargaining agent and then determining the bargaining agency etc. The sole bargaining agency can be an exception in a situation where all other unions get less than say 15% votes and the larger union getting more than say 70% votes in the secret ballot. So outside leadership should not be progressively diminished. dadagiri trade unionism. If the objective is to curtail dadagiri trade unionism the remedy lies elsewhere. Therefore instead of sole bargaining agent. Instead many a times these issues are generalised and wrong remedies are proposed like taking away normal trade union rights. These issues should be addressed directly and prohibited. Voting and proportional representation should determine this. Outside political leadership or interference should be curtailed. politicisation of trade unions. Trade union should be totally above politics in the interest of workers and there shall not be any legal provision for political fund. Recognition procedure should not end in elimination of Trade Unions. Composite bargaining agency Composite bargaining agency is the most feasible and democratic method of giving representation to all Trade Unions working in the industry. closed shop system. criminalisation. The belief that sole bargaining agent will create industrial harmony is basically unrealistic and imaginary. Whatever idealism trade union movement had in the past and has even today is due to outside leadership. Abuses Abuses in the field of trade union are not only a headache to employers but also to the trade union movement as well. but a healthy proportion between outsiders and insiders in leadership has to be maintained. right to strike etc. There should be secret ballot of all unionised workers.

But the situation in India is just the reverse. Ultimately the society was the loser. Strike (Para. Recent Kerala Government employees strike (in February. that also under heavy public pressure. In public utility services.REPORT OF THE NATIONAL COMMISSION ON LABOUR Unions have accepted this in public at least in principle. During the recent Kerala Government employees strike. Strike ballot (Para. 20) is an attempt to restrain strike. Trade unions should not be used for political motives. Workers use strike as a pressure tactics and method of redressal. There token protests by workers are heavily honoured. necessarily there should be provision for an effective alternate grievance redressal mechanism. The system initially helps in securing the contributions of members to the union thereby saving energies of union activists for collection of subscription. Unfortunately that is miserably lacking in our country. 26) Check-off system has its own inherent defects. Token strike has relevance only in a world where conscientious employers show high moral level.20) Any move to restrict the right to strike is undemocratic. But in the long run it creates distance between members and the union thereby making the union to loose its grip over its members. which will not be achieved by token or symbolic strike. Whenever we talk of restricting strike or give exemption to certain sectors from labour laws. Check off and secret ballot (Para. By restraint on strike in many public utility services (termed in some places in the report as socially essential services) the employer’s benefit or profit is safe where as only worker’s rights are affected. Considering strike ballot and consequent majority support as “the equivalent of a successful strike” in the Commission’s report. alternate and effective redressal mechanism’ evolved through consultation with trade unions. Main purpose of strike is to pressurize the employer. Government should not have the authority to prohibit a strike as that will only ignite the 161 . 2002) is an example of how society will suffer if there is no effective redressal mechanism. Then the strike can be the last resort. Adoption of secret ballot is the correct system of confirming the membership of a trade union. 48) as is seen in the case of the strike of Kerala Government employees. imposing restrictions only on workers and nothing upon employers or the state is unwise (Para. The idea that “the result of strike ballot too be considered as strike” is unrealistic. Sc. only after nearly one month of strike Government was ready for even to talk to the striking employees. Such secret ballot shall be conducted after a regular period of time. alternate and effective redressal mechanism” will only destroy industrial peace. 16 Of Trade Union Act should be amended to prohibit political funds. A strong workers’ organization is a necessity for sound and healthy industrial relations. How can such Government be given the power to prohibit strike? Any constraint over strike without a “self restrictive. No nationalist worker or Union would attempt to hamper production or services. In countries like Japan where employers show a high level of work culture strike is almost a superfluity. unless in subsequent period the employer also is made disentitled to his profits out of fruits of production. Any restriction on right to strike should be preceded by a ‘self-restrictive. will not serve the purpose. Hence Government should evolve a mechanism that would render the right to strike a superfluity. The effectiveness of such a mechanism will be such as to render the strike superfluous.

26). It is not correct to say that management will take care of the interests of supervisory staff. They are put to jungle law now. we have also have to accept discrimination in attitudes and dedication on the part of workers also. as there is no concept of fraternity in industrial management. The model legislations appended to various chapters of the report of the commission should not contain such arbitrary powers given to the Government. by employers. or anti-social forces or gherao or destruction of machinery or other acts of violence on the part of workers as mentioned in the report. as reiterated by the Supreme Court in its latest decision in State Bank of India case. The labour laws being prescribing minimum conditions. Supervisory category need not be clubbed with managerial personnel for exemption from laws. they must govern all the Industrial activities relating to workers. In many smaller establishments supervisors are paid as low as workers. should also not be brought under exemption (Para. Those who were arrested under ESMA became heroes. Once we accept the principle of discrimination to some section. and be punished (Para. 22). So proposal for “only adjudication by labour court or arbitration” and no other legal remedy is injustice to that category of workers.. Any formula that militates against unionization has to be opposed. Already supervisory and managerial staff is exempted (beyond a salary level) under certain laws. Supreme Court said. Free doles or food or monetary compensation is 162 . Recognition should not be used as a weapon to deregister smaller unions or punish its members.REPORT OF THE NATIONAL COMMISSION ON LABOUR emotions of the workers and strike will there by be shrouded with sacrifice. This is also what was seen from the recent Government employees’ strikes in Kerala. The only principle now being commonly followed is “labham subham”. confidential staff etc. The question of exemption from labour laws to certain categories is devoid of any merit. It is the basic right of the worker to raise his voice to establish his own rights. They are not a category of their own. Free service cannot be thrust upon such workers. They should have right to redressal with regard to many of their wage and service conditions. Exemptions (Para. Employers in many places use Goondas against workers to break the strike. Illegal strike should be identified by the illegitimate demands and methods used. Exemption from this can be granted only where the person works in an activity not for satisfying his material needs but for rendering spiritual service or free service voluntarily to the organization. While denying the said demand the Commission has rightly pointed out the example of China. These are only exceptions and the penal law of the country is capable of meeting such anti social activities. Government should not be given the arbitrary power to grant exemptions for the above reasons. In the name of these strike should not be restrained. 58) who have no other source to earn a livelihood for themselves and their family should be treated on par with other workers. Relief workers (Para. Strike does not in normal case lead to the use of hired goondas etc. Some section of workers like security and watch and ward staff. 62) Commission was right in rejecting the demand for exempting export processing zones and special economic zones from the purview of labour laws. Even smaller unrecognized Trade Unions should not be deprived of the right to strike and right to bargain. Smaller trade unions that are merely agitating should not be accused of as doing illegal strike.

Legislation for Small scale sector The principle shall be that labour laws should have uniform applicability. Commission is not to put reverse gear to the rights enjoyed by workers under certain laws in certain areas.

So it is always proper to keep Court Fees completely out of industrial adjudication. it is an employment and wages are very important for them. For the purpose of circumventing the provisions of law. The main object of the new legislation on the small scale establishments being reduction of procedural aspects and simplification of law as applicable to them and not curtailing the existing rights of the workers.

The case of voluntary workers who volunteer themselves out of dedication to serve the people is different. Following are certain other rights to be added1.
