Employers Organisations

In India the term “trade union”, according to the Trade unions Act, refers to the employers organizations also. The need for these organizations is for

1. The development of healthy and stable industrial relations

2. To promote collective bargaining at different levels

3. To bring a unified employers’ viewpoint on the issues of industrial relations to the government in a concerted manner

4. To represent in the meetings of Indian Labour Conference and Standing Labour Committee, the employers approach to labour matters.

Like trade unions, employer’s organizations too are organized at three levels in our country. There are local organizations, such as Bombay Mill Owners Association, which serve the needs of local employers only. Then there are regional organizations, such as the Southern India Mill Owners Association, which serves the interests of their members in a particular region. Finally, there are several apex organizations, such as the All India Manufacturers Organization, which serves as central bodies. At present, the important apex employer’s organizations in India are as follows:

1. Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI)

2. Council of Indian Employers (CIE)

3. Associated  Chamber  of  Commerce  and  Industry  of  India  (ASSOCHAM)

4. All India Manufacturer’s Organization (AIMO)

The general functions that federations perform are of the following four types:

1. Communication

They keep members informed of all new labour laws, shifts in labour policy, important court decisions on labour matters and important tripartite deliberations.
2. Advice

They advice members on complex legal provisions when such advice is sought.

3. Representation

They represent employer’s point of view before the government on all labour problems.

4. Education

They educate members on important labour issues by holding seminars, conferences and training programmes.

NLC examined the working of employers associations and recommended that they should:

1. Undertake promotion of collective bargaining at various levels.

2. Encourages observance and implementation by their members of bipartite and tripartite agreements.

3. Expedite implementation of wage awards by members.

4. Work towards elimination of unfair labour practices by employers.

5. Encourages adoption by members of personnel policies conducive to productivity and industrial peace.

6. Promote rationalization of management or organization to improve productivity.

7. Arrange employer’s education in the concept of labour partnership in industry.

8. Work towards collective welfare of its members through training, research and communication in the field of labour management relations.
