On 9th May 2014, the National Workers Union (NWU) filed an application for recognised majority union status with the Registration, Recognition and Certification Board for the centre co-ordinators of MIC, a state enterprise. The MICBU, a house union, is the recognised majority union for the workers in this bargaining unit and is not expected to resist the NWU application.
