Labour Industrial Disputes

A statement indicating the number of pending industrial disputes in the Twenty-two Central Government Industrial Tribunal-cum-Labour Courts (CGIT-cum-Labour Courts), set up by the Central Government under the provisions of the Industrial Disputes Act, 1947, is at Annexure-I.

The action taken by the  Central Industrial Relation Machinery on disputes raised by labour unions in the Hindustan Machine Tools (HMT) and the workers at Singereni Collieries is at Annexure-II.

The officers of Central Industrial Relation Machinery under Industrial Disputes Act, 1947 intervene and make all efforts to resolve disputes through joint discussions and conciliation.

To expedite the disposal of cases pending with the CGIT-cum-Labour Courts, a scheme for holding of Lok Adalat as an Alternative Grievance Redressal Mechanism was introduced in the Tenth Five Year Plan (2002-2007) for speedy disposal of the industrial disputes in the Central Government Industrial Tribunal-cum-Labour Courts.  This Scheme has been made an indispensable part of the adjudication system in the Eleventh Plan.

Further, with a view to ensure continuity of disposal of pending cases in Central Government Industrial Tribunal-cum-Labour Courts, a system of link officers amongst Presiding Officers has been introduced from 2009-10 in order to ensure that the judicial work of the Central Government Industrial Tribunal-cum-Labour Court does not suffer when the post of regular Presiding Officer is vacant due to administrative exigencies.

This information was given by the Minister of Labour and Employment Shri   Mallikarjun Kharge  in reply in reply to a written question in the Lok Sabha today.
