Dear Seniors, We are an auto parts manufacturer, and being part of the HR team, I am tasked with the responsibility of stopping the formation of any sort of labor/emp union
what are the steps we need to take from day 1 to stop any such formation,

From India, Delhi

There is no sure method to suggest to you regarding stopping the formation of a trade union in your plant. Using strong-arm tactics and terror you may succeed for some time but you need to plan long-term activities to keep the employee unions at bay. It depends on how good you are at resolving the grievances of the employees and the proactive steps taken to meet the employees' aspirations. In short, your employee engagement activities would support the creation and sustenance of an enduring emotional relationship between the employees and the company.

Union is a fact everywhere. It is more aggressive where a grievance redressal mechanism is absent. Therefore, it becomes a priority of every HR/ Personnel manager to address the grievance of the employees failing which they will go for a collectively resulting in forming a trade union. Each individual employee should be given an opportunity to open up about his grievance and you should find a solution for it. Otherwise, what happens is that each one will start discussing the issues in a common forum and will find that only when they demand collectively their grievances would get redressed. The legal form of it is called trade union. It is a fact and some employers will put the entire blame on the Personnel/ HR manager and even the HR person would have to leave the organisation. This can be avoided if the employer is sympathetic towards the employees. The HR person can escalate or report the issues and the employer can step in and solve the issues. If not done, HR will become helpless.

Please find that you have a system of addressing the individual grievances and if not, please start it. Give a message that their grievances will be taken up in priority,
