(1) 7 
(2) 25
(3) 100

Answer: (1) 7 
As per the Trade Unions (Amendment) Act, 2001, no trade union of workmen shall be registered unless
at least 10% or 100, whichever is less, subject to a minimum of 7 workmen engaged or employed in the
establishment or industry with which it is connected are the members of such trade union on the date of
making of application for registration. It also states that a registered trade union of workmen shall at all
times continue to have not less than 10% or 100 of the workmen, whichever is less, subject to a minimum of 7 persons engaged or employed in the establishment or industry with which it is connected, as its members. So the minimum member required to start a trade union is 7, the only condition is they must have same problem in common.
