If trade unions are abolished, workers may find it difficult to protest against any sort of injustice. Hence, they are still required but certain regulations to prevent unnecessary actions certain unions may be required. These have to be studied by the experts and a solution found to protect the interest of the workers as well as for the good of the nation.

Trade unions are necessary to protect the interests of the employees and to prevent exploitation of them by the managements. Therefore it is not advisable to abolish trade unions. However there should certain guidelines within which the trade unions can function. This is essential to prevent them flexing their muscles and taking the managements and public for ransom.

There can be strong arguments for as well as against it
They can play a very important and positive role. For example they did a good job in opposing govt plan to invest pensioners\' hard earned money into speculative markets
But they movement has degenerated into a monster due to un-enlightened leadership which only plays negative roles and opposes just for the sake of opposing

Trade Unions are registered under the Trade Union Act 1926, which has been extended to even those states which were formed. Thus it is an Act which has got constititutional status in which ammendments have been made over the years. Thus to abolish the Trade Unions, there is only one way and that is to ammend the constitution and strike down this Act in the Parliament. Trade unions and their role emerged because of the miserable conditions of workers in cities like London, Manchester etc in industries that evolved in the wake of Industrial revolution.

One thing we forget to realise is, even if a boss gets a good salary now, it is purely due to the efforts of Trade Union. If a worker gets a minimum salary of Rs.10,000/= if boss don\'t get a proportionate salary of at least Rs.50,000/= then he can\'t be a boss.
