Need for cordial industrial relations stressed

CHENNAI OCT. 22. The need for cordial relationship between employees and the management was stressed by speakers at a function here today to celebrate the 47th anniversary of The Hindu Office and National Press Employees Union.

The president of the union, Ramamurthy, and the general secretary, N.P. Ramajayam, highlighting the welfare measures launched by The Hindu, said the newspaper, as an institution that was celebrating 125 years of its existence, had set standards in cordial industrial relations that could be emulated by other newspaper organisations.

N. Ram, Editor-in- Chief of The Hindu, appreciated the role of the union in paving the way for the introduction of new technology and said the management had responded by ensuring that not a single job was lost in the process.

N. Murali, Joint Managing Director, said the print media was passing through difficult times due to stiff competition and sought the support of the employees and the union for a smooth functioning of the organisation and for implementing its plans.

S. Krishnaswamy, vice-president of the union, welcomed the gathering. B. Arasu, joint secretary, proposed a vote of thanks.
