Dear comrades,

The Conference was inaugurated by Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh on Tuesday 23rd November 2010. Senior level representatives of the three pillars of the tripartism, Trade Unions, Employers‟ Associations and Government, participated in the deliberations of the two days conference. The conference deliberations focused on three key concerns relating to the world of work, namely, Global Financial downturn - its impact - job losses - comprehensive package for protection
of labour force, etc.; Problems of contract labour - social security, wages, etc. and amendments in the contract labour legislation; and Employment generation and skill development. The ILC noted that the economic slowdown has still not been overcome at the global level. The recommendations of the Committee included strict implementation of the Labour laws on layoffs, retrenchment etc. Broad based social security
provisions should be devised. Employment guarantee schemes and Public Distribution System should be further strengthened. Training and retraining of workers is important in the present situation. The benefits of stimulus packages should percolate to micro, small and medium enterprises also.
After deliberating upon a variety of issues relating to contract labour the following resolutions were passed unanimously:

1. All efforts should be made to ensure that the existing provisions of the Contract Labour (Regulation and Abolition) Act, 1970 and Rules made there under are implemented in letter and spirit.
2. The labour enforcement machinery in the Centre and the States should be strengthened by providing requisite manpower and other logistic facilities so as to ensure effective implementation of labour related legislations.
3. States are mandated to constitute Tripartite State Advisory Boards under the Act. However, it was pointed out that a number of States do not have such Boards constituted. It was unanimously resolved that such States should be asked to constitute such Boards under the Act at the earliest.
4. Payments should be made to the contract workers through banks. Necessary amendments should be made in the Act/Rules.

The following proposals were also considered by the Group:

1) In case where the contract labour perform the same or similar kind of work as the workmen, directly appointed by the Principal Employer, the wage rates, holidays, hours of work, social security and other conditions of service of contract labour shall be the same as are available to the workmen on the rolls of the Principal Employer.This provision exists substantially under the existing Rules. This needs to be incorporated in the principal Act.
2) The threshold limit of 20 workers for applicability of the Act should be dispensed with.
