Industrial Relations And Labour Laws
The term "non-unionised staff" is a misnomer. The Constitution of India gives to every Indian citizen the fundamental right to form associations subject of course to the restrictions imposed by the Constitution itself. So there cannot be any legal way to manage this situation. If the bye-laws of the Union which the management staff wants to join permits him to become a member of the Union, then he can become a member of the Union.

Courts have held that managers can form trade unions. In Government Tool Room and Training Centres Supervisory and Officers’ Association, Bangalore Vs Asst. Labour Commissioner & Deputy Registrar of Trade Unions, Bangalore [(2002) 2 LLJ 339 (Kar)], it was held that any group of employees irrespective of whether they are ‘workmen’ under Industrial Disputes Act or not can be registered as a trade union under Trade Union Act.

#AnonymousHi, Our Union structure is craft based (meaning separate Unions for skilled,semi-skilled and skilled). Can an employee of skilled category be an office bearer of unskilled category?

We seek your opinion on the point as to whether the management is bound to recognize the said union ? How can we disown or challenge such trade union?
