It is a widely accepted fact that the class interest among different trade unions has weakened the concept of single unionism in Nepal. The growing rift among major national centers has eventually delayed the ratification process of the Labor Act and Social Security Bill. ITUC-NAC in this crucial juncture has assumed a leading role to bridge the gap by bringing the different groups together to a single platform. The ITUC-NAC has been playing a key role in minimizing antagonism and increasing harmony among leaders/activists of the existing trade unions. It has made a significant contribution to bridging the ideological distance among trade unions and has maintained an enhanced level of coordination among them through its proactive mediation strategy.
The idea of single unionism has been pushed ahead simultaneously and federations have become more aware and committed towards joint policy issues of the workers. Consequently, a major chunk of central level, as well as plant level leadership, have been involved in collaborative efforts to create more coherence in the policies and strategies for the common goal of the entire workforce. ITUC-NAC has been playing an important role in facilitating the tri-partite negotiation process for settling the contentious issues in an amicable manner. It has helped the concerned parties/entities to peacefully settle the existing disputes between workers and employers on several occasions.
