All the 11 Central Unions along with independent Employees / workers Federations are jointly appealing to all workers in the country to gear up in large number at the grass root level to prepare and to go on strike on 20-21st Feb.2013.

It is only through this action the Govt. could be made to come out from its adamant attitude.

He particularly highlighted the amendments proposed by the Ministry of Labour & Employment to the Minimum Wages Act, 1948, National Floor Level Minimum Wage to workers and to the Contract Labour (Regulation & Abolition) Act, 1970 to make its enforcement stricter and labour-friendly. The steps taken by the Govt to provide for a minimum pension of Rs.1000/- to the EPF subscribers were explained. On the enforcement of labour laws the Minister clarified that both the Central and State Governments take effective measures for inspection of workplaces and prosecution is launched wherever irregularities are detected.
