ILO Conventions on Collective Bargaining and its Impact in India
“Where Free union and Collective Bargaining are forbidden, Freedom is Lost”
Collective Bargaining can be elucidated as the method of accommodation between two institutions (employer and employee) which have both conjoint and contradictory interests. It can also be used as an effective tool to resolve Industrial Dispute. However due to the non-ratification of ILO conventions 87 and 98, Collective bargaining doesn’t have much impact in India which is not an encouraging element. Being a founding member of I.L.O., India should reconsider its stance on this subject by ratifying the indispensable conventions.
