NEW DELHI-Hesitant Beginning in Industrial Relations

Hesitant Beginning in Industrial Relations B M THE Indian Labour Conference, revived last week alter six years in cold storage, was a good starting point for normalising industrial relations after the lifting of the double Emergency. But it was not an occasion for coming to grips with the problems which have to be tackled decisively and expeditiously and the conference ended up by setting up working groups for a study of these problems on a tripartite basis. This was .supplemented by a promise on the part of the Labour Minister that the government would take decisions as- early us possible on some of the burning issues projected by the trade union leaders such as the restoration of the right to minimum bonus and ending the wage and DA freeze in the form of the Compulsory Deposit Scheme. These are gains in themselves arising iron' the restoration of democratic rights and civil liberties but they are hardly enough to cope with the growing industrial unrest which has come to the surface after the end of the Emergency.
