Hi every body

Please clarify what would be the minium number to register a trade union.

is it

10% or 100 of the workmen are employed or engaged in the industry


minimum of 7 workmen who are employed or engaged in the industry

I am not able to understand the section 4 of tu act 1926 as it incorporates above two things.

Please give a detailed clarification

Thanx in advance

The latest amendment inthe Trade union act 1926 is as below

If the number of employees in the particular estabilshment is less than 100 then 10% of the total employees is required to form a trade union

If the number of employees in a particular estabilshment is more than 100 then the minimum number of members required to form a trade union is 100 .

You can check this if you have the amendment copyof the Trade union act.

Thanks a lot for clarification.
I want to draw you attention on section 9a of trade union act which stipulates that minimum number for continuation of registration of a Trade Union is 10% or 100 of workment who are actully engaged or employed in the industry subject to the condition that minimum of 7 of workemen actually engaged in the industry who are members of the trade union.

hence i urge you to clarify whther this action is also amended by as section 4.

thanks in advance

the minimum member required to start a trade union is just 7
the only condition is they must have same problem in common
a person can be a member of any number of trade union there is no restiction on that
there is no role for the numbers or the strength of the number of employes found in that work place
this is according to the trade union act of indian govt
