ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Tuesday allowed holding referendum of the labour union in Capital Development Authority (CDA), ARY News reported.

A bench of the apex court was hearing a petition against holding the referendum, scheduled on September 17.

The bench ruled that the appeal will be be heard after September 17 referendum and adjourned further hearing of the case till the first week of October.

A group of the CDA Labour Union while objecting over the National Industrial Relations Commission (NIRC) decision of holding referendum of the union, had challenged the order in the supreme court.
