'14-day notice mandatory for employees to go on strike'

Santosh Kumar Gangwar

The government has proposed to make a 14-day prior notice mandatory for employees to go on strike under new labour laws, Labour minister Santosh Kumar Gangwar said on Wednesday.

"If there is a strike in any unit, they (employees) would have to inform at least 14 days in advance," he said in Rajya Sabha.

This is part of the new labour law which the government is bringing and the ministry is in touch with the various state governments, Gangwar said.

Noting that the government is bringing reforms in labour laws, the minister said as part of that, it is clubbing 44 labour laws into four codes.
