From The Editors’ Desk
SAMHITA
Dear Readers,

Greetings from the Team FIRE@X. We bring to you yet another edition of Samhita.

This edition has articles on some very thought provoking issues related to Industrial Relations. “The hands that rock the cradle have the power to rule the world”, goes a famous saying but it is only off late that these hands have been given their due importance. Women have always been an underrepresented lot in almost all possible fields. But with the changing times, perceptions about women and their roles in the professional front has also changed and women are no longer being shunned from areas which were earlier considered taboo for them. On these very lines, we bring to you this month’s Samhita where the readers will get a chance to read about the impact that women can have on Industrial relations.

The issue has an insightful article by Adwitya on another important aspect of Industrial Relations, workers participation in management. The article brings to the light the pros and the cons of involving the workforce in decision making of organizations. Making for an interesting read in the issue is a take on the unionization of the unorganized by Akanksha Jain. We also bring to you a discerning take on the issue of Changing contexts and challenges for conciliators by Professor Jerome Joseph.

This month’s issue features an interesting poetic representation of a union man apart from a crossword to tickle the grey cells of the readers.
Samhita has been a novel effort from the team of Forum for Industrial relations@ XLRI to spread awareness about the issues related to Industrial relations and Labor Laws among the students. The IR monthly, a premier publication by FIRE@X, is an attempt to reach out to students across B-Schools as well as to those who are a part of the industry and make them aware of some of the finer nuances of Industrial Relations and the issues which are plaguing Industrial Relations in the present times. We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to all those who have contributed to the successful completion of this month’s Samhita and sincerely hope that the readers find the newsletter, a good read.

Happy reading!!!
Team FIRE@X

Neo liberal ideologies have overtaken class centric ideologies and in the process free market economics has overrun
regulated economies, private investments are preferred over
public enterprise, profit centric shareholder dominance has
replaced public interest oriented state welfare functions,
market forces take precedence over regulatory standards
and processes.
As a consequence, industrial relations dynamics at the firm
level has undergone dramatic changes in a liberalizing,
