Govt's policy on labor relations; Industrial peace & progress

“Labor Relations” refers to the interactions between employer and employees or their representatives and the mechanism by which the standards and other terms and conditions of employment are negotiated, adjusted and enforced. The government labor relations policy is declared in Art. 211 which is a focused elaboration of the basic labor policy announced in Art.3 which, in turn, echoes the constitutional mandates. The policy intends to attain social justice through industrial peace and progress. The latter is founded on employee participation and collective interactions between employer and employees. In management parlance, the input is the parties’ rights and duties, the process is worker’s organization and collective bargaining, and the output is industrial peace and progress towards social justice as the end goal.
