Kochi: G Sanjeeva Reddy was on Monday re-elected as president of Indian National Trade Union Congress (INTUC) for another four-year term at its national conference, which concluded here on Monday.

This was the fourth consecutive term that Reddy was being chosen as president of the INTUC, R Chandrasekharan, its Kerala unit president told reporters here.

Meanwhile, INTUC, in a resolution, demanded that the government should set up a 'labour sector corporation' which can take over the 'sick' public sector industrial units and rehabilitate a large number of workers being affected by them.

The resolution also opposed the cap on bonus by amending the Bonus Act of 1965 and said there was a need to improve the existing social security laws.

INTUC would also submit a memorandum to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh highlighting issues related to price rise, disinvestment of PSUs, implementation of labour laws and formulation of a new economic policy, Reddy said.

He said a 'Central Trade union Co-ordination Committee was formed comprising of various trade unions to put pressure on the Centre to look into the demands of working class.

The organisation along with various trade unions would stage a dharna before Parliament on October 28 to highlight problems faced by working class, he said.

Reddy said no employers should be allowed to employ more than 10 per cent of total workers on contract basis.
