Trade Union seeks amendments in labour policy

Muttahida Labour Federation Pakistan (MLFP) called on the government to frame a new policy for labour laws, since the existing laws are not proper, outdated and needed to be revised. It also insisted that, the government consult the representatives of all labour organizations across the country, to formulate new laws.

The labour laws are not executed properly and being violated, said Mr. Muhammad Iqbal, MLFP Provincial President, while addressing a press conference. To avoid violation of laws and to take strict actions against violators, Mr. Iqbal proposed effective and specific laws in the new policy.

As per the existing policy, minimum wages for the labourers are fixed at Rs 6000 per month, which is really a trivial amount. A number of labourers are not paid even this much, and the working hours of those who receive this fixed amount have been increased to 12 hours from 8 hours, stated the Provincial President, citing the act as inhuman.

Moreover, factory closures have resulted in more than 200,000 labourers turning unemployed. He complained that poor law and order situation, along with improper power and gas supply, has forced 80 percent of textile, sugar, paper mills and other factories to either cut back production or pull down their shutters.
