New Delhi: The International Labour Organization (ILO) appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking his intervention in the labour law amendments and exemptions initiated by many states in India,reports liveMint.

ILO was responding to a letter to it by 10 trade unions from India written on May 14 highlighting the plight of workers as well as pointing at the violations of ILO convention of No 144,and India is a signatory to ILO convention 144, according to the report.

The ILO confirmed the receipt of a letter by Indian trade unions seeking to intervene with the Indian authorities urging them to protect workers’ rights.

The development is significant just as the states including Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat announced sweeping amendments or exemptions to laws for three years.
