TEA clarifies on its request for amendment in labour laws
Jun '14
Tirupur Exporters Association clarifies its requisition for 60 hours per week including working hours and overtime given to workers.
TEA wishes to note that in its recent Memorandum given to Hon’ble Union Minister of Finance, Shri. Arun Jaitley, TEA had requested for amendment in labour laws, so that the total number of hours of work in a week, including overtime, shall not exceed to meet out the compliances.
For the ready reference, TEA gives below the relevant portion of it from its Memorandum:
-“AMENDMENT IN LABOUR LAWS”, the policy intervention is required for overcoming major non-compliance in garment factories through amendment in the factories act, 1948. 
-Section 64 - The total number of hours of work in a week, including overtime shall not exceed 60 to meet out the compliances and moreover, TEA’s neighboring competing countries are following the same. It is to be noted the workers in general want to have over time every day and not interested to work, if less over time is provided to them in a week.” 
Meanwhile, CITU Trade Union has given objections through press releases stating that TEA has asked for increasing normal working hours from 8 to 10 hours per shift which is not correct and totally in contrary to TEA’s requisition given in the memorandum. 
In view of this, TEA has sent a clarification letter to Trade Union CITU, to inform the position and settle the issue.
