Labour law has been defined by Piron as "that part of the positive law which regulates the industrial and collective labour relationships in the private sector, between an employer and his workers, workers and their fellow workers and the workers and employers and the state". The purpose of this article is to examine both the viability of Piron's definition and, at the same time, the validity of defining the function of labour as the preservation and promotion of industrial peace.
