China to enact law to deal with rising number of labor disputes
Source: Xinhua

BEIJING, Aug. 26 (Xinhua) -- China's top legislature on Sunday started to read the draft law on labor dispute mediation and arbitration amid an increasing number of labor disputes that emerged in the country.

The draft law was submitted Sunday to the seven-day 29th session of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC), or China's top legislature, for the first reading.

According to NPC statistics, labor dispute cases in China are continuously increasing in recent years. Statistics show that labor dispute arbitration organizations at various levels dealt with 1.72 million labor dispute cases involving 5.32 million employees from 1987 to the end of 2005, with a growth rate of 27.3percent annually.

Xin Chunying, vice Chairman of the Legislative Affairs Commission of the NPC Standing Committee said on the legislative session that excepting the increasing number of labor disputes, other problems also exist. For instance, the personnel in arbitration organizations are not professional and thus lack credibility and the process of arbitrating labor disputes is long, making the cost of arbitration high.

2. They absolutely must enshrine the right to strike...
...especially in private-owned enterprises. They cannot use the old argument that "the workers own the firms, so they'd be striking against themselves." The largest number of firms, comprising a substantial minority of economic output, are private-owned. Deng Xiaoping removed the right to strike from China's constitution in 1978 or 1980, I forget which.
