First study the 'Termination Orders' issued by your Management to know what are the grounds on which they were terminated. Study whether stipulated procedures have been adopted in deciding to terminate them, the charges framed, documents, witnesses produced & examined. Better you should have an eminent advocate to assist you in the process though the advocate himself cannot appear for domestic inquiries against employees. Examine whether you can raise an Industrial Dispute as there appears mass retrenchment.

If unionization is the recent development, is not the Union aware of the fact that this is a gross violation of the provisions of normal working hours of any establishment - specific law applicable to the questioner's Company?
How is that the Union simply asked the workmen to slow down the daily production without making any complaint to the Factories Inspector or the Labour Officer?
No prudent Management would straight away terminate the services of "major workers" that may mean either way i.e., majority no of workers as well as Union office bearers.
The final question indicates that the questioner wants to know just the procedural aspects of conciliation and the role of the employer. I would like to request him to come out with direct questions for his doubts so that the Forum can clear his doubts with ease and direct to the point.
