Hyderabad: The workers unions in the Telangana State Road Transport Corporation (TSRTC) are now gearing up for election to become the recognised union in the Corporation. With the term of recognised union Telangana Mazdoor Union (TMU) ending recently, the other unions have started demanding the Labour Commissioner to verify the unions in the Corporation and begin the process for electing the recognised union. The two-year term of TMU has ended on August 8.

There are several unions in the Corporation including the TMU, Employees Union, Telangana Jathiya Mazdoor Union, National Mazdoor Union (NMU), Staff Workers Federation (SWF), Karmika Sangham and others. A union leader who has a greater number of supporters would get to be the Executive Director of the Board.

There are over 55,000 employees working in the Corporation. The EU and TJMU and others have represented to the Labour Commissioner for verification of the unions. Employees Union general secretary K Raji Reddy alleged that the TMU had failed to address workers issues. “Though it could provide facilities for the workers, it had done nothing to solve the problem of work burden on them,” said Raji Reddy.

TJMU general secretary K Hanumanthu Mudiraj claimed that most of the employees/ members from various unions/units/depots had joined TJMU and alleged that the TMU had failed to serve the working class in TSRTC. “We have a strong hope of getting the recognition in upcoming election,” said Hanumanthu.

The Union leaders requested the Labour Commissioner to conduct fresh union membership verification in TSRTC, determining of the recognition under Clause (3) and (6) of the Code of Discipline immediately and advise the TSRTC management.

The unions have also demanded the Labour Commi ssioner to abolish all the privileges which were given to the recognised unions in TSRTC. Meanwhile, the election process starts once the Labour Commissioner starts the verification of labour unions. In APSRTC, the EU has defeated NMU to get the tag of a recognised union.
