Cong body INBCWF questions Union Govt's proposed labour code

New Delhi, July 11 (UNI) Condemning the effort of Union Government to amend the Labour Law without consent of all stake holders, National Working Committee meeting of Indian National Building Construction Forest and wood Workers Federation (INBCWF) on Thursday said all organised and unorganised workers, trade unions strongly were opposing the proposed four labour code initiated by NDA government in the name of Labour reform.
The meeting, held at AICC headquarters and chaired by INBCWF president and former MP Dr. Rama Chandra Khuntia, passed two resolutions on the amendments in Labour Law and efforts taken by outgoing Congress president Rahul Gandhi against the BJP in the Lok Sabha polls.

"Why it is called codes, why not it is named as Industrial Relation Act, Social Security Act, Wage Act and Occupational Safety and Working Condition Act? Is it like service code of Government employees to discipline workers or to protect workers?", asked Mr Khuntia in the meeting.

The meeting also expressed concern that the government is proposing Rs. 178 as the national minimum wages and questioned on what basis the 15th Indian Labour conference has set a guideline for minimum wages.
"Central government has fixed Rs. 10000 as minimum wages as per the recommendation of Minimum Wages Advisory Committee. Cost of living index as on today is totally different today. The government minimum basis is different as central trade unions demanding Rs. 18000 per month", it said.
The meeting also asked in Social Security Code how the government could give social security to all workers without any budget provision.

In the resolution, the meeting expressed concern for not nominating INTUC to ILO Conference and national Level Boards Consultation Committee and Joint negotiation Committees simply for the reason INTUC does not support the anti labour policy of NDA Government, protest against the government policy to sale the public sector.
In a separate resolution, the committee appreciated the work of Mr Gandhi for his concern for the working class as a whole and worked hard and campaign to defeat NDA Government.
"Very few leaders is this world refused accept position or resigned for the position. Sonia Gandhi refused to become Prime Minister in 2004 and nominated Dr. Manmohan Singh to takeover. Likewise Rahul Gandhi resigned from the post taking the full responsibility of the defeat", the resolution said.
The meeting further said that, Mr Gandhi's leadership is inevitable and passed resolution requesting him to withdraw the resignation.

Newly elected MPs such as Uttam Kumar Reddy, Komatreddy Venkat Reddy, Revanth Reddy from Telangana and Kuldeep Rai Sharma from Andaman Nicobar also addressed the members and assured to raise the labour related issues in Parliament.
