No, Santhosh. During your duty hours, you are only an employee like anyone else expected to devote your entire time and attention to your duty only. In case of any untoward incident like an employment accident, you can leave your work place with the permission of your supervisor.

You can not leave workplace during working hours for union work. The employees having problem in work place to be discussed in works committee meeting, because Union members are members too. The employees got problems can intimate it in union office in duty off hours. Loitering during working hours and leaving own workplace without reasonable reasons are treated as misconduct.

Function of HR department is not restricted mainly to read and interpret the standing orders.HR department is the link between the management and the workman whose interests are diverse. Standing orders are not meant to be moral guidelines but are meant to ensure that the production process is not uninterrupted.
An example will illustrate the matter.

The departmental head called the union leader in his cabin and advised him that his union work also should be well planned meaning thereby that he should not attend to grievances of workers every now and then but must restrict it to some particular day of the week and for couple of hours. Of course the union leader had no objection and consented to the same.

A problem errupted in the canteen about food and the workman refused to take lunch and were sitting outside the canteen.
HR manager requested the union leader to go to the canteen and sort out the matter. Union leader informed him that according to instructions of his Head of the department the union work was to be done only on particular day and therefore he will wait for that day. The department head also asked him to go to the canteen to which the union leader told that he was paid for working in the department, therefore he will not do any Union work during working hours.Thus there was at least an hour of production loss and if calculated in monetary terms it would have been enormous.

Therefore The HR managers and departmental heads should use common sense and not rely only on standing orders and legal position.

The union leaders are also integral part of organisation and are necessary for uninterrupted production activity.If they are not given due respected and there role not appreciated,there would be chaos.

I agree with Mr. Jagadish. The management and union shall have an understanding and flexibility to achieve organization goals. If we fixed to rule book only, frankly speaking we can not run and both sides will become rigid. We should give freedom to union members and at the same time control them wherever required in a diplomatic manner. You see in the above the loss for organisation is more than what union is going to lose. We should act as per situation and manage.
