Before answering your question, please tell me what is trade union and its purpose?
Purpose of forming trade union is to talk, negotiate and deliberate various issues pertaining to EMPLOYEES and conditions of their service, represent employees w.r.t unfair labour practice, protect the rights of employees, etc. do you agree? It is the right of EMPLOYEES to form trade union. It is employees driven forum and not the EMPLOYER, do you understand?
However, there are certain TRADE UNIONS supported by management, actually speaking they are in camouflage. There you may not find any ACTUAL bargaining, negotiation taking place and decisions may be influenced.

Trade Union is the requirement of employees and not that of the employer. As a matter of commonsense, if an employer initiates to form a trade union, he is simply doing so just to make a union of his touts to use that in his favor, as against the interests of the employees.

Dear Shruthi
This is a dangerous question you have posted in this professional column. Espousing a favourable Union to be formed by the Employers all happens behind the scenes. This will not come out very openly. Even the Union leader and other memebrs are selected carefully by the Management and the HR man has to play a diplomatic role in forming an Employer sponsered Union. In most cases, it back fires and if WORKERS smell a rat

Such Unions are already existing but they are called as Trade Associations and not Trade Unions.

Dear Shruthi,
if you are thinking just as in case of workmen, why not various managements come together and discuss their problems, put forth their views express their problems etc, there are such fora available. Employers association of India, CII, various employers associations in most of the industrial areas, etc. are formed with this purpose. Some organizations CII FICCI etc have much wider scope and they also represent causes of employers.
if you dont have an association you can start an informal gathering of HR Professionals & Factory Managers in your area.

Dear Shruthi,
trade unions are formed by employees and not by employers. but employers have right to form an Association. the Employers Associations are formed to address the issue of employers, to be represented by the office bearers of the associations in case of any labour dispute. under section 36 of industrial disputes act an employer may be represented by an office bearer of an association whose member is the employer. so when the workman files the case through union leaders the employers have to be represented through the manager or office bearer of the association. otherwize union leaders can file application under section 36 and bar advocate from representing the management. but this application can be filed at the earlier stage of the case.
For any further query feel free to call me.
