Working on policy to improve workers' conditions: Gangwar 

millenniumpost , May 16, 2018

Minister of State for Labour and Employment (I/C) Santosh Kumar Gangwar has on Thursday said that the government was working on a policy to improve the working and living conditions of the 40 crore labour force in the unorganised sector.

The policy that would incorporate the suggestions of state labour ministers would emphasise on the health and social security of workers to optimize their contribution to the national economy, the minister said.

"Harmonious industrial relations and social security for workers were the cornerstones for sustainable economic growth. The code on wages was being deliberated upon by the standing committee of Parliament and is expected to submit its report soon," Gangwar said while addressing the 84th annual general meeting of the All India Organisation of Employers (AIOE), an affiliate of FICCI.

Speaking on the occasion, AIOE president Gaurav Swarup pointed out that reforms in the Industrial Disputes Act, 1947, need immediate attention. "It 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," Swarup said.
