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 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

#Anonymoussome one said that after the amendment of 2001 now ......If the number of employees in a particular establishment is more than 100 then the minimum number of members required to form a trade union is 100 .
it is my humble request that amendment of 2001 simply provides that this number should be either 10 percent of total number or 100 which is less. it will apply in any case.
because as it was said that if number is more than 100 then 100 person will be required . just i wish to say that more than 100 means may be 101 and if the total number is 101 how 100 persons may be required for registration of a trade union. further in my support i wish to say that plese refer section 9-A also in this regard... thanks

a. Application for registration of trade union shall contain details of 7 employees of the industrial establishment.
b. minimum 10% of the total employees or 100 employees shall be members of the trade union, which ever is less.
c. From above conditions it is clear that minimum number of employees in the industrial establishment shall be 70. 10% of 70 is 7. If the total number of employees is higher than 1000, at least 100 employees become the member of the trade union and from among the 100, seven persons shall sign the application for registration.
