Industrial conflict which interferes with the general flow of commerce can be avoided or minimized if employers, employees and labor organizations recognize under law one anotherís legal rights in their relationship with each other. They must also recognize that neither party has any right in its relations with any other to engage in acts or practices which endanger the public health, safety and interest.
The objectives of Labor Management Relations which is controlled by the Labor Management Relations Act, 1947 are:-
to prescribe the legitimate rights of both employees and employers in their relations affecting trade and commerce
to provide methodical and peaceful means for preventing the interference with the legitimate rights of the other
to protect the rights of individual employees in their relations with labor organizations whose activities affect commerce
to define and prescribe practices on the part of labor and management which affect commerce and are unfavourable to general welfare
to protect the rights of the public in connection with labor disputes affecting commerce
