Unions demand tripartite labor court
KATHMANDU: The labor unions have demanded setting up a tri-partite labor court. They have blamed that the only labor court in the country could not work in favor of workers and called for establishing a tri-partite court.
Speaking in a programme organised on the occasion of 123rd May Day here today, Vice-chairman of the General Federation of Nepalese Trade Unions (GFONT), Uddhav KC, said the court should be equally responsive to the government, management and the workers.
He stressed the need of constituting the Labour Commission, saying the workers’ problems would be resolved when the law for the social security was passed. KC also stressed on making amendment to the labor law, the insurance law and demanded 10 per cent representation of the labourers in the new constitution.
Chairman of the CPN (UML) Kavre District Committee, Gokul Banskota, Rudranath Basyal and Chief District Officer of Kavre, among others, demanded to free the working class from becoming the victims of consumerism.
A rally organised prior to the assembly went around various parts of Banepa Municipality. RSS
