The 80th Annual General Meeting of the All India Organisation of Employers was held on December 20, 2013 at New Delhi. The theme for this year’s AGM was ‘Industrial Relations: Conflict to Cooperation’.

The AGM was inaugurated by Ms. Tine Staermose, Director-ILO and Dr. G Sajeeva Reddy, President-Indian National Trade Union Congress (INTUC) was the Guest of Honour.  In her inaugural address Ms. Staermose stated that the theme for this year’s AGM is very relevant and has a clear direction towards achieving harmonious industrial relations. Innovative IR practices are the need of the time and labour laws need to reflect the evolving labour market situation and address current needs to promote job creation.

Dr. G Sajeeva Reddy in his address emphasized that industrial relations is all about mutual trust and confidence, and strike and lockout should not be treated as a weapon rather be treated as a shield. Strike and Lockouts are the main reason for creating conflict between the two parties. Speaking on the conventional working hours in India and the ratio of output, he observed that employers and trade unions need to felicitate effective working hours.

Mr. Sanjay Bhatia, Managing Director – Hindustan Tin Works Ltd. was elected as the President of the organisation. In his vote of thanks, Mr. Bhatia stated that over the years, trade union movement in India has found firm roots and employer organizations also need to be strengthened for sound democratic functioning of industrial relations. Labour and industry can build bipartite synergies to address outstanding IR issues. AIOE’s future agenda would focus on it.
