Communication with un recognised union

(Querist) 26 December 2014 This query is : Resolved 
We are a Defence Public Sector Undertaking. We are having five registered unions of employees. Recently the Labour machinary had conducted referendum for ascertaining the majority union and issued a letter that one union , which have emerged with large no. of members to be recognised for two years. The management accorded recognition to that union. Few other unions are making correspondence with the Mangement on various issues including issues of common nature. Management is of the view thatr since a particular union has been accorded recognition, we should make correspondence with them only not with others. Is it legally correct? Whether the other unrecognised union have any right to be corresponded by the Management on their letters?

The management is right in negotiating with other unions although they are not recognised.

Unregistered unions subject to certain conditions are having rights to protect the interests of their members.

T. Kalaiselvan, Advocate (Expert) 28 December 2014
The management's action of communicating to the other unions regarding the employees issues and other aspects on the lines of communicating or liaising with the recognised unions is not illegal. It is the decision of management in order to maintain peaceful industrial relationship with the employees. expert Dr, Vedhula Gopinath is right in his observation and the opinion.
