Besides the aforesaid No Amendment to the Existing Certified Standing Orders Can BeValid and Applicable Untill and Unless the said Proposed Amendment is Approved by the Certifying Officer who has to follow/ abide by Due Process of Law prescribed in the Industrial Employment (Standing Orders) Act 1946.
Kritarth Team, Bengaluru Office,
The Certifying officer is legally bound to give sufficient opportunity to the affected parties ie Workmen/Union to give their say/objections to the proposed amendments.
Since the proposed amendments prima -facie are against the well established principles of natural justice, it is very unlikely that it will pass the muster.
Already our collegue posted their views to understand the issues. I understand your/everyones problem to bell the cat.
Submit the copy of draft SO for ammendment before the certifying authority. Leave the things in the court of certifying authority & others involved in the process.
If it gets passed, is okay. But I am fully confident & in doubt that the union would not agree to the point of ammendment proposed by the management.
This problem arises when people in position i.e. ED / ED (i/c) / CGM considers, what they feel should be the law!
