Leather industry is one of the high employment generating industries in India. As per one estimate the sector can generate about 6 million direct and indirect employment by the end of 2015. Trade unionism is a common practice in many of the leather manufacturing organizations. The trade union formation shows a great deal of variations from small, medium to large organizations. In the small and medium leather organizations trade unions are functioning under the industrial union banner whereas in large organizations unions are mostly organization specific. This paper attempts to study different factors like union loyalty, union instrumentality, ‘them and us’ attitude, workplace collectivism etc. as the determinants of trade union participation in the organized leather industry in Kolkata.
