SC allows CDA labour union referendum on September 17
ISLAMABAD – The Supreme Court of Pakistan Tuesday allowed the holding of Capital Development Authority’s (CDA) labour union referendum scheduled on September 17.
A three-member bench of the apex court headed by Acting Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial conducted hearing of the petition of CDA Labour Union Amanullah Group against holding of the referendum.
The counsel of the CDA labour earlier argued that the reservations in the case should be tackled after the labour union’s referendum.
The bench ruled that the appeal will be heard after the September 17 referendum and adjourned further hearing until the first week of October.
A group of the CDA Labour Union, while objecting over the National Industrial Relations Commission (NIRC) decision to hold referendum of the union, had challenged the order in the Supreme Court.
