trade union conclusion - Industrial Relations Management

Conclusion of Trade Union act 1926

Trade unionism in India suffers from a variety of problems, such as politicization of the unions, multiplicity of unions inter and intra-union rivalry, small size and low membership, financial weakness,and lack of welfare facilities for the members, weak bargaining power, reliance on litigation and strikes, and dependence on outside leadership. This vicious circle has adversely affected their status and bargaining power, and must be broken at as many points as possible. In this context two measures should receive due attention. One, the development of a sound trade union education, which would create a body of competent, well-disciplines and full-time trade union leaders.Two, the unions have to play a vital and constructive role in improving the quality of life of the workers.They should evince greater interest in such welfare programmes for their members,as education,including literacy, health and family planning, and recreational and cultural activities. They can also promote personal and environmental hygiene and a sense of thrift. The government can consider some financial aid to those trade unions which take up such welfare activities.Such involvement in constructive activities would help trade unions in furthering the interests of their members.

The factors that make a trade union strong and healthy are unflinching adherence to the union’s constitution and rules,regular payment of dues,fully representative character of the union, co-operation with sister unions and a sound leadership.A methodological organization with an enlightened labour force is an essential.
