AITUC meet to discuss centre’s anti-labour amendment

Covai Post Network


The All India Conference of the AITUC, scheduled here in February 2016, will discuss the impact of the proposed anti-labour amendments proposed by the BJP-led NDA government, senior CPI leader D. Pandian said.

Pandian, the chairman of the reception committee for the conference, said that the Centre was trying to amend the Bonus Act and deprive the rights of workers union in Special Economic Zones. Alleging that the Centre was trying to amend the labour laws to favour foreign companies and corporates, he said that these amendments will seriously affect workers in all the segments.

The 4-day conference was originally scheduled for January 15, but has now been postponed to February 25, due to the floods in Chennai.

The conference will also demand the Centre to fix the minimum salary as Rs.15,000. He also urged the government to not sign the WTO treaty, especially in the services and trade sector.
