Perfecting the Administrative Solution to Labour Disputes: Postscript

P. A. Joseph

Abstract

« The judges lack the intimate knowledge of the very dynamic process of industrial relations and collective bargaining. For these reasons...the new labour code has removed the court's jurisdiction over labour disputes...The new law seeks an administrative rather than a judicial solution to labour disputes. »**
