Tripartite Committee to discuss the issue of workers participation in management

The issue of workers participation in management will be discussed in the meeting of the Tripartite Committee here today.

New Delhi, May 16 : The issue of workers' participation in management will be discussed in the meeting of the Tripartite Committee here today.

The meeting will be presided over by the Minister of State (Independent Charge) Labour and Employment Oscar Fernandes. The representatives of employees and employers will also attend the meeting.

The main focus of the discussion will be participation of workers' at the board level.

At the earlier meeting held in February 2006, there was divergence of views between the employers and the workers. The employees' representatives wanted that Participation of Workers in Management Bill, 1990 should be accepted without any dilution. The employers' Association was agreeable for participation of workers at the shop and plant level but not at the apex level.

The Participation of Workers in Management Bill, 1990 was introduced in the Rajya Sabha on May 30, 1990. It provides for specific and meaningful participation of workers in management at shop floor level, establishment level and Board of Management level in industrial establishments.

It also provides for formulation of one or more scheme to be framed by the Central Government for giving effect to the provisions of law which will include, among others, the manner of representation of workmen at all the three levels.

The Bill proposed to constitute one or more Council at the shop floor level and the Council at the establishment level having equal number of persons to represent the employer and the workers.

The Bill also envisages a Board of Management at the apex level where representatives of the workmen as defined under the Industrial Disputes Act shall constitute 13 per cent and persons representing other workers shall constitute 12 per cent of the total strength of such management.

The Bill was referred to the Parliamentary Standing Committee of Labour and Welfare, Lok Sabha on July 12, 1994 which submitted its report to the Lower House on December 18, 2001.

The Parliamentary Standing Committee of Labour and Employment also stated in its meeting held in April, 2005 that the Participation of Workers' in Management Bill, 1990 needs to be pursued.

The second National Commission on labour has also recommended that a scheme of workers participation in management should be provided through legislation.

The Commission said that it may be initially applicable to establishment employing 300 or more persons. For the smaller establishments, a non statutory scheme may be provided.

As stated by the Parliamentary Standing Committee, the Ministry of Labour and Employment has decided to pursue the Bill after consulting social partners with some modifications in view of the new social and economic parameters that have evolved since 1990.

Today's meeting has been called to facilitate one more round of discussion with the stakeholders for arriving at necessary consensus on the issue of participation of workers at the apex level.
