It appears that more than making 'concessions' for the labourers the management requires soul searching in adapting themselves to be law abiding citizens!

Is your company is sick or going on BIFR (Board for Industrial and Financial Reconstruction)? In only that situation you have to take these actions otherwise you have to change some criteria of work and job role to control/retained the existing manpower. Long exercise required for taking this type of action and you have to convince the manpower and union also(If exist) , that it is betterment for us. Some job taken from supply to measurement (Piece Rated) or some to piece rated to supply manpower.
