What is Union?


The term ‘Union’ refers to a group of staff members who have created a group to achieve common work-related goals such as better working conditions and fair wages for everyone.


The unions typically choose a leader amongst themselves to represent them and they are the ones who negotiate with the company, which is known as collective bargaining. In return for this, the members pay the union dues or fees.


The unions might also provide other benefits such as telephone advice and legal representation in the event of a dispute between the company and the employees. The unions originated in Europe with the industrial revolution where the employers were trying to exploit the workers.
