Abstract: Since the end of the last century, the Indian tea industry has been going through a major crisis. Poor industrial relations are one of the major causes of this crisis. Keeping this backdrop in mind, the study aims to explore the factors for poor industrial relations and examine the impact of various factors on industrial relations. In the study, opinions from 306 workers have been considered. Factor analysis and multiple regression analyses have been done. The result of factor analysis bought out five prominent factors of industrial relations. These are the 'management aspect', 'employment issue', 'welfare aspect', 'parental care aspect' and 'maintenance aspect'. Further, multiple regression analysis has been performed to assess the impact of the identified factors on industrial relations. The result shows that the 'management aspect' has the highest positive impact on industrial relations. However, 'parental care aspect' and 'maintenance aspect' have a negative impact on industrial relations.
