"We are going to bring four labour codes. Labour Code is very, very important. It is going to play a major role. One will be for wages. There is complication in wages being paid. We would like to bring all wages under one code," Union Minister of State for Labour Bandaru Dattatreya said today.
"Second is Industrial Relation Code. We will amalgamate all laws. Third is social security code and fourth one is working conditions and safety. Safety and security of the workers will be strengthened under these codes," he said..
He was addressing a regional conference of state Labour Ministers and officials from southern states here.
The Government is holding tri-partite meetings with representatives of trade unions, employers and Central and State governments on a host of labour-related issues.
Noting that there are a number of laws concerning labour and employment, Dattatreya said his Ministry is doing "simplification, rationalisation and amalgamation" of legislations to promote productivity and welfare of workers.

The NDA Government is bringing in different initiatives like Universal Account Number (UAN), skill development, among others, for the benefit of workers, the Minister maintained.
