Promulgation of Industrial Relations Ordinance for ICT - July 16, 2011

The President of Pakistan has promulgated Industrial Relations Ordinance 2011 on July 16, 2011. The current Ordinance has been promulgated to fill in the vacuum created after abolition of concurrent legislative list and transfer of industrial relations, among other labor related matters. to provinces.

As there was no law for regulation of industrial relations in Islamabad Capitol Territory, regulating the functions of national level federations and resolution of trans-provincial issues, so came the promulgation of this new industrial relations ordinance. Moreover, this Ordinance was promulgated now because Parliament is currently not in session (to discuss and approve this new law)
