You can create a "group". And then add users to that group, who wants to see it. The non-members cannot see that column.

To create a group,


    <record id="group_uom" model="res.groups">
<field name="name">Manage Multiple Units of Measure</field>
<field name="category_id" ref="base.module_category_hidden"/>

In the tree view, specify that group in the column you want:


<record id="stock_inventory_line_tree" model="ir.ui.view">
<field name="name">stock.inventory.line.tree</field>
<field name="model">stock.inventory.line</field>
<field name="arch" type="xml">
<tree string="Stock Inventory Lines">
<field name="product_id"/>
<field name="product_qty"/>
<field name="product_uom_id" groups="product.group_uom"/>
<field name="location_id" groups="stock.group_locations"/>

Please refer stock_view.xml in the stock module for referrence to find the above code. And group_uom you can find in product module under security>>product_security.xml. Try to understand how to create the group and use it, thats it :)

Thanks @Akhil.
