Nashik Workers Union v Hindustan aeronautics Limited (2016) 6 SCC 224

Category: Labour Complaints were filed by the appellant Union under Maharashtra Recognition of Trade Unions and Prevention of unfair labour practices Act 1971 for reinstatement of trainees with continuity of services and back wages. The Labour Court granted the prayer which was affirmed by the Industrial Court. In a writ petition filed there against it was contended that the “ appropriate Government” in respect of the dispute was the Central Government and not the State Government and therefore the 1971 Act was inapplicable and consequently complaints filed by the appellant Union ought to have been dismissed. Consequently, the appeals are allowed and the impugned order is set aside.
