The Trade unions Act, 1926 is one among a group of labour law legislations in India which were enacted to give employees various benefits and encourage them to take steps for collective bargaining. In a country like India the importance of welfare legislations, especially in the field of labour laws cannot be over emphasized. This is proved by the high number of instances in which the Trade Unions Act is invoked and the number of cases delivered by the various courts in the country which are continuously interpreting the provisions of the Act in newer light and newer contexts.
It was due to this increase in the number of cases on the Trade Unions Act and the various interpretations given by these cases as well as amendments in light of Indi’s recent push towards a more liberalized economy, that the authors revised updated this book Commentaries on Trade Unions Act, 1926 with the latest case laws and amendments. This book contains cases till September, 2017 from the major labour law journals of the country and also contains the major rules and regulations such as the central Trade Unions Regulations, 1938; Important state regulations, etc.
This book will be extremely useful for Employers, Employees, Trade Unions Lawyers, Industrial Tribunals, Labour Courts and all those dealing with concerned with Labour Laws and serve its patrons well. Any suggestions for the improvement of this book would be greatly welcome.
