Panaji, Oct 9 (UNI) Calling for checking unfair labour practices, Goa Chief Minister Digambar Kamat today hinted that his government will enact a legislation for according recognition to labour unions, after studying practices in other states by a committee to be appointed soon.

He was reviewing the problems faced by labourers and labour unions in the organised and unorganised sectors at a meeting of the State Labour Advisory Board at the Porvorim Secretariat Complex.

The meeting brought to his notice lack of legal back up in Goa for according recognition to labour unions, besides various other problems that have been facing the labour force in this tourist state.

He also decided to constitute a sub-committee under the chairmanship of labour secretary to study various issues so that the govenment could curb unfair labour practices through implementation of various labour laws and strengthening of the machinery.

The Board expressed its concerns over ''prolific'' rise in contract labour, non-payment of minimum wages to workers and lack of code of conduct for arresting unfair labour practices.
