NLC India Limited is a model employer in implementing various welfare measures to its employees and the contract employees engaged by contractor employees for executing works in NLCIL.

Recently, the Trade Unions representing contract workmen submitted certain demands including wage raise and regularisation of services.  The NLCIL management proactively constituted a committee consisting of the Contractor employers and Trade Unions representing contract workmen, to facilitate the process of bipartite discussions and to ensure smooth discussions and settlement.  Accordingly, the issues raised by the Trade Unions representing contract workmen are being discussed by the bipartite committee to arrive at an amicable settlement.

In the meantime, while the discussions are on, as a gesture of goodwill and to instil confidence in the minds of the contract workmen regarding the concern of the management on their welfare, the NLCIL management, on its own volition, has announced an additional payment in the nature of Ex-gratia ranging from Rs.2000/- to Rs.3000/- to the contract workmen, over and above the Bonus amount of Rs.14,200/- to Rs.19,000/- for different skill categories payable by the contractors to them during this month.  Thereby the total amount receivable by a contract workman for the ensuing Deepavali festival will be around Rs.16,200/- to Rs.22,000/-.

The announcement of payment of Ex-gratia even without their asking has come as a pleasant surprise to the contract workmen and has created a confidence on the Bipartite discussions being carried out.
