Dear Seniors,
When any discussion regarding any settlement with any recognized union then is it required to have minimum number should be present from both parties ( Management & Union ) while discussion the matter.

From India, Pune
Important managment representtaive and union office beraers who are authorised to negotaite should be present for the meeting. In collective bargaining ex-partie decisions are not taken and hence both the represnetaives should be present in adequite numbers.

Dear Prashant
As such there is no sacrosanct guideline to be followed. But it is advisable to invite names of the "negotiation team" from unions which ideally should be restricted to 2-4 and from Management side also we should form a "team/committee" including represenatation from operations, maintenance,finance & HR.
No other memebrs than this agreed memebrs should be allowed to participate in negotiation. Each meeting should be minuted and each data/information shared should be documentated.

For a settlement President and Secretary of the union shall be signatories and from management side some authorized representatives will be enough. In case President and Secretary are not there, where no union exists, 5 representatives elected by workmen shall be representatives of the union and they can sign settlement.

Dear Prashant,
The rule of thumb is that the number of workmens' representatives (or union representatives) should not be less than the numbe rof management representatives, as applicable in a Works Committe (please refer Industrial Disputes Act, 1947, Section 3)

A peculiar situation is arising, the office bearers are transferred by the establishment. Joint Labour Commissioner called for conciliation meeting. Can the transferred worker (Office Bearer) is eligible to attend the conciliation. Seniors please verify. Regards.

dear sambasivakamasani.
Why not ? If the management is serious in resolving the dispute then their release from present posting can be kept in abeyance till the negotions are over and an agreement is reached........................................... .s.kumar/mba(hrm)

Dear Prashant: I endorse the view that President & General Secretary of the union are a must. In addition, any of the members of the executive committee could be present. In my experience, it is better to have a wider representation as the acceptability of the decision increases.
