PHD CHAMBER & TRADE UNIONS EVOLVING CONSENSUS FOR NFIG WITHOUT GOVT. PARTICIPATION IN IT

 

India Inc. and the leading trade unions have joined hands to set up National Forum of Industry Growth (NFIG) with objectives consisting of curbing the industrial unrest, increase productivity leading to higher production with a prime focus to accelerate manufacturing and ensure peaceful co-existence for owners of Indian enterprises and its labour force in an equitable and fair manner.

 

The Forum is proposed to be set up under the aegis of PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry for which the necessary support has already been roped in by leading trade unions such as BMS, INTUC, AITUC and the like. 

 

At a meeting held here today under the aegis of PHD Chamber’s Past Presidents such as Mr. Raghupati Singhania and Mr. Ravi Wig including its current Vice President, Mr. Mahesh Gupta and several Managing Committee Members of the Chamber with BMS, INTUC and AITUC office bearers like Mr. Baiz Nath Rai, Mr. Sanjeeva Reddy and Mr. D S Sachdeva, a road map was drawn to conceive the proposed Forum. 

 

However, the government’s representation has been kept out of the jurisdiction of the Forum so that all the contentious issues relating to labour and industry are mutually resolved between industry and multiplicity of the labour unions with a reconciliatory approach to make sure that growth and manufacturing go in tandem with each other.

 

Both industry and the labour unions offered to commit that the issues on which arise the labour unrest leading to deceleration of productivity and production would be handled delicately both by employers and representatives of the employees so that such disputes and misunderstanding do not arise and a trust is built for smooth functioning of economic activities in all enterprises in respective of their size and scale.
