S. No. of order/proceedings

Date of order/proceedings  27.06.2012

Order with signature of Judge and that of parties or counsel where necessary.


Hafiz Arfat Ahmed   Chaudhry,  Advocate for the petitioner.


The petitioner has mostly contended in the petition that despite application made to respondent No.l, Registrar, Trade Union, National Industrial Relations Commission, Islamabad, he is not entertaining the same and illegally continuing the earlier C.B.A. for whom, a certificate was issued commencing the tenure whereof from 21.04.2010. The said tenure of CBA has been completed in view of section 24 (11) of the IRA, 2008. It is further contended that section 19(2) provides that written application be made by any of the registered Trade Union or group of establishment, the Registrar, shall upon such application, hold within fifteen days, a secret ballot to determine the collective bargaining agent for the establishment or the group. It is further contended that subsection (13) of Section 19 provides that an application made to the Registrar, no employer shall transfer, remove, retrench, or terminate any worker or officer of the Trade Union without permission of the Registrar. Learned counsel for the petitioner referred such provision of law has expressed apprehension that directions may be issued to respondent No.1, as adverse action can likely be initiated against the petitioner or any other office bearer of the Trade Union.

2.        Since a very trivial issue is involved in the petition as well as the prayer is confined to the extent of issuance of direction for holding secret ballot, but prior to that, such application, which is still pending with respondent No.l without any proceedings initiated thereupon. Therefore, the respondent No.l is directed to dispose of the applications made by Ammad-ul-Hassan Qureshi, Secretary General, Pak Telecom Labour Union &. Malik Habib-ur-Rehman, Secretary General, PTCL Mazdoor Dost Union within a period of 15-days in accordance with law. Meantime, till election process is not completed, no adverse action shall be initiated against any of the employee or office bearer of the Trade Union.

3.        With these observations, instant writ petition stands disposed of.

    My dear brothers your comments must be in the larger interest of workers irrespectively affiliation with any group. This is not our problem to establish premature referendum but the main problem is that, what will be done after the referendum. Who will give surety that no one will get stay after the referendum. There will be no dispute among the wining party after the referendum. I think there will be no party in power to solve the problems alone which are being faced by the workers since long. I therefore, suggest all the registered trade union leaders to finish their differences for the sake of poor workers and become brothers if you are really sincere. Otherwise the result will be very bad.

    The decision taken by the Honourable Islamabd High Court Islamabad of dated 27-06-2012 is really appreciable in all respects but if taken to task by the PTCL Management. Because it has been noticed so many times that the PTCL Management is always not giving any importance towards the very solid decisions taken by the Hounourable Courts as well as GOP Announcements related with PTCL regular employees.

  7. Dear All
