Speech on Labour / Labour / Labour Day – 1
Good morning friends Today we all have gathered here in our company to celebrate International Labour Day. It is celebrated annually on 1st May to remember the hard work and dedication of the workers irrespective of their power, status, roles and responsibilities in the organization. Labor / Labor / Labour Day is to honor the social and economic achievements of the workers. Labor Day is also known as ‘May Day’ or International Workers’ Day and is celebrated as a national holiday in about 80 countries.
It ideally constitutes an annual and national acknowledgment of the devotion and contribution of the workers ensuring the prosperity, strength and welfare of the country. The hard work of every employee is of utmost importance to our organization and we believe in giving them equal rights. I have been associated with this company for almost 35 years and till date I have not received a single problem or complaint which is related to suppression of rights of workers. Since there have been many new appointments in our organization which are also present here today, I would like to give brief information about the origin of Labour Day.
May Day or Labour Day originated in the late 19th century with the United States labour union movement advocating for eight hours of work per day. Since the conditions of the late nineteenth century were pathetic and unsafe for the working laborers, they had to work for about 12-16 hours a day. In 1884 the Federation of Organized Trades and Labor Unions (FOLTU) passed a resolution that from May 1, 1886, an 8-hour term would be legally valid to act. The working workers were demanding an eight-hour workday by several agitations, strikes, etc. Five years later, May 1 was recognized as a national holiday by a socialist organization and gradually many countries adopted this culture.
May Day is celebrated purely to pay respect and tribute to the contribution made by the workers towards the betterment of the organization and consequently our society.But today Mazdoor/ Labour Day has evolved into a trade union festival which is losing the deep and true significance of this day. Although our organization very well recognizes the rights of workers who are also known as employees but there are many companies which actually take unaccounted work from the employees.
Though Labor/Labor Day was introduced to enforce working 8 hours per day but an employee working in the organization also has rights. It is important that the organization should not only operate with the intention of generating profit but it should also take care of the needs and requirements of its employees without which the company cannot achieve its goals. At the same time workers or employees should also respect the work culture of their organization and live within the code of conduct of the organization with whom they are working. Labor / Labor Day definitely protects the rights of workers and employees should not use it as a weapon to threaten the management to get undue benefits, only then the purpose of Labor / Labor Day will be fulfilled. Thanks. – Speech
Speech on Labour Day for students
Good morning friends Thank you all for being a part of this forum. Today we will discuss about Speech On Labour Day which is also known as May Day. It is celebrated every year on 1st May across the world. Our organization is a private welfare organization which works closely with the state government. We basically work for the development of the workers belonging to the low level. Today we also have very famous industrialists who support this movement. Friends, whenever we hear the word labor, we think of hard work or physical labor. Today we have gathered here to focus on some important rights of workers working for big and prominent organizations.
Historically, Speech On Labour Day originated in the US with a bill advocating 8-hour work for workers, and since 1886, Labor Day has been celebrated to honor the hard work of workers. started. The important fact is that no company or organization can run without due diligence but it does not mean that any employee working for the company should be ignored. The company must ensure that workers or employees are not discriminated against on the basis of caste, religion, creed, gender, disability etc.
after 8 hours of work and should be paid competitive wages or salaries. Furthermore, every worker is an individual first and thus should be respected irrespective of their position or job. It is also true that workers are the driving force of our Indian economy and industrial progress. Workers also have a major political influence as some labor issues have helped many political parties win elections. Workers help a lot in different ways like running factories, building roads, building buildings, extracting oil, etc. Today’s workers are not so ignorant or uneducated that they cannot understand their rights or can be easily suppressed but there are some big companies which import workers from remote areas or villages.
These people are gullible and since they are also poor they agree to work on any terms. The members of our organization travel to those areas and listen to their issues and highlight it in front of the state government and work for their betterment. We have opened many schools in villages and provided education to children as well as elders. Our organization also works against child labor. We have identified several mines and factories that employ children in their production units. The issue was highlighted by the NGO last year and we immediately took cognizance and freed all those children from such units. Now we provide them education and provide arts and crafts training to their parents so that they can earn their livelihood.
I appeal to all the industrialists, governments, both private and government firms, including the general public, that we should come together to eliminate the evil from our society and get the support of the low level people so that they can lead a dignified life. Thanks. – Speech
Small speech on Labour Day In English
Good morning to all of you from my side. I welcome all of you to this conference specially dedicated for the Labor/Labour/Labor Day celebrations. This day is generally celebrated on 1st of May every year but it also varies according to different countries. This day is also called May Day. It is celebrated to acknowledge the economic and social achievements of the workers. It is celebrated to promote and encourage labor unions. The purpose of celebrating this day is to promote the need for an eight-hour working day with an end to the struggle of the workers, which earlier ranged from 12 to 16 hours in a day. It was necessary to reduce the working time to 8 hours a day to prevent people from agitating and to protect themselves from moral and physical suffering.
This day has great significance in every country as it ensures the dedication of the work force towards the efforts. Just imagine how restless and upset we would be if we had to work for 12 to 16 hours a day. To be honest, I think that every employee or worker should have a provision of exemption on the basis of workload. The importance of this day, which is celebrated as Workers’ Evaluation Day, is immense. This day has formed the basis for the reduction in the working hours of workers and for assessing the achievements of the workforce.
This festival has become a historical significance all over the world and is celebrated by labor unions all over the world. Workers are always striving to make our lives better and in fact they deserve respect for their work. In India, this Labor Day was celebrated for the first time in 1923. This day is a special occasion to honor the true spirit of the working class and laborers around the world. It is the day when workers come together to celebrate their strengths which show that they are fighting and will continue to struggle to bring about positive reforms for the working class of the society.
We must all protect the working class in whatever cases we can. It is indeed a special work force who constantly strive for the welfare and better life of the society. Although this day is celebrated as a national holiday in most of the countries, we should not celebrate this day as a holiday but to recognize the efforts, activities and true dedication of the workers. We should also encourage our children and other colleagues to celebrate this day in their own way and should know the importance of this day. Special seminars and sessions should be organized to recognize the efforts of the labor force. Thank you all for celebrating this occasion and sharing your thoughts with me. Thanks. – Speech
Short Article on Labour Day
Good morning to all the dignitaries present here. Thank you all for visiting here and giving us your valuable time. I am going to give a speech today on the occasion of Labor / Labor / Labor Day. As we all know Labor Day is celebrated on 1st May every year all over the world. This day is celebrated to pay tribute to the workers who have contributed to make the world strong and prosperous. Earlier in the 19th century the working conditions were dire and at the same time all workers went on strike demanding an eight-hour movement in which they advocated eight hours for entertainment and eight hours for rest. Labor Day itself constitutes a number of privilege and welfare policies for working men and women.
This includes the reduction of daily working hours from 12-16 hours a day to 8 hours. No company, organization can force any worker to work for more than 8 hours without paying their extra hours. The minimum wage rate has been fixed to protect the interests of the working people.
Associations are created to protect their rights. The Children Act 1986 has made it an offense by law to force any child below the age of 14 years into employment. No company can grow without dedicated people for the work. In return, dedicated people should also get respect and fair judgment for the duties they have done. Labor Day has empowered all workers to enjoy the freedoms and privileges enjoyed by them for their contribution to the nation. Thanks. – Speech
