Modi government's attacks on workers' rights 28-11-2019

As part of the rationalization of the laws on labor relations labor relations The individual and collective relationships and contacts between workers and employers in the workplace, as well as the institutional interaction between trade unions, employers and also the government.

cf. social dialogue, the Modi government is currently leveling workers' rights down and institutionalizing poverty wages, which is done in the interests of multinational companies. Indian labor law reforms are far-reaching and will have a significant impact on economic and social policy. They include labor relations labor relations The individual and collective relationships and contacts between workers and employers in the workplace, as well as the institutional interaction between trade unions, employers and also the government.

See social dialogue, wages, social security, welfare, labor inspections, trade unions and special economic zones.
The reforms will consolidate around forty-four key labor laws into four labor codes, covering the following areas: Labor Code on Labor Relations Labor Relations The individual and collective relationships and contacts between workers and employers in the workplace, as well as the institutional interaction between trade unions, employers and also the government.

See social dialogue, Labor Code on Wages, Labor Code on Social Security and Labor Code on Safety at Work and Working Conditions.
This includes introducing a range of flexible labor market practices that weaken and undermine trade unions, removing regulatory barriers to harmful business conduct, and weakening individual workers' social cohesion and responsibility in the workplace. This is done by replacing predictable and long-term employment contracts with fixed-term, flexible, temporary employment contracts and other categories of precarious work. It also introduces practices that give preference to workers' committees over unions, and turns a blind eye to employers who engage in anti-union practices if they fail to recognize representative unions and refuse to negotiate with them.
With these changes, the government is particularly aiming for a better ranking in the discredited doing business ranking of the World Bank in order to attract more investment in the private sector.
After the mass protests against the Modi government's proposals since early 2019, Indian trade unions have responded to the new government's plans with unprecedented unity. The ten trade union federations on the unions' coordination council, including ITUC affiliates INTUC, HMS, SEWA and other federations as well as independent unions, held another protest march on August 2, stating that they were “slamming labor laws and other laws through the Strongly condemn the summary in Labor Codes and that it does so regardless of the strong objections of the trade union movement. "
So far, the Indian government has failed to meaningfully consult the social partner, social partner trade unions and employers or their representative associations, in particular the workers' unions, on ongoing labor law reforms. Some meetings that had been scheduled to discuss the draft laws failed due to a lack of goodwill on the part of the government. The trade union federations have complained that no real, meaningful and well-planned central-level consultations have taken place outside of the canceled session of the 2015 Labor Conference. In 2017 and 2018, the Standing Working Committee adopted an agenda for a session of the India Labor Conference, which was unilaterally canceled by the Prime Minister. The situation is worse at the state level, where there are no tripartite consultations. It is alleged that industry-level consultations at the state level have been compromised because state governments, among other things, unilaterally appoint workers' representatives, usually on a political basis and unrelated to ILO standards.
The unions are not only calling for the proposals to be withdrawn and for a higher national minimum wage, but also for privatization to be halted and for more and better jobs to be created by stimulating economic demand through higher wages, rather than attracting multinational investments by dismantling health and safety measures close.

Violence and death threats against union organizers at clothing manufacturers 30-06-2018

In June 2018, the Worker Rights Consortium (WRC) in Washington uncovered a report of cruel repression aimed at preventing Shahi Exports workers from unionizing and advocating better pay and better working conditions.
Shahi Exports is India's largest apparel exporter making apparel for top brands such as H&M and Benetton. In March 2018, several union supporters circulated a petition urging management to ensure clean water and raise wages. The Shahi superiors then threatened several workers who were sympathetic to the union with death threats and urged other workers to beat them.
The WRC said its auditors interviewed more than 30 workers at Shahi's Unit 8 plant in Bangalore. They found that eight supervisors had been responsible for violence and death threats and that 15 union-friendly workers had been suspended.
Several supervisors called union supporters into their office, verbally abused them, and then instructed other employees to beat them. A manager asked other workers to beat a female union supporter, and one of them almost strangled her. A second supervisor hit another female union supporter and told other employees, “These whores are going to close our factory! Beat her and kill her! ”The worker was beaten, her clothes were torn, and her necklace, cell phone and handbag were stolen.
Pressure from the WRC and the reaction of Shahi's western buyers, particularly after the negative press following the release of the WRC report, resulted in an announcement by Shahi in July that he was firing the superiors in question. Shahi also reinstated the 15 workers, repaid them and agreed to recognize and negotiate with the Karnataka Garment Workers ’Union.

Luminous Power Technologies in the state of Himachal Pradesh is a subsidiary of Schneider Electric, a global specialist in the energy industry.
The union has carried out all the registration processes. However, when management learned of the workers' moves to form the union, it embarked on a series of anti-union activities: union committee members were threatened, all union officials were shifted to isolate them and make it harder to meet other union members in the workplace.

The company's management then went one step further and, shortly before the labor administration's review process began, transferred all 12 officials to the plant in Hosur, Tamil Nadu, more than 2,800 kilometers away.
Workers reported that some Luminous Power Technologies managers insulted, humiliated, and denigrated union officials for being caste in front of other workers in order to prevent other workers from joining the union.
