Are Trade Unions Relevant in the Indian Banking Sector?

There are multiple views on the kind of impact trade unions have on organisations and their employees. The existing literature, however, is not critical or well researched.

It shows how unions can play a positive role by ensuring improved corporate governance and service conditions, though these organisations have a tendency towards internal fragmentation, discrimination and a high degree of political intervention.
