1. Contract workmen can form their own Trade Union by following the process for registration of Trade Unions as mentioned in Indian Trade Unions Act. ITU Act does not distinguish between casual/permanent/badli/contract/temporary workmen.
2. Alternately they can subscribe to the existing Trade Union (if any but recognized by the employer) of the permanent workmen of the company this will result in strengthening the unity of the workmen.
3. The Master Servant relationship does not apply here. But employer employee relationship exists as Principal Employer & Contractor & employees of the Contractor.
4. If they join the same TU which already exists in the company, Employer will have to negotiate with the union.
