Functions of Trade Union

Functions of Trade Unions

Traditionally trade unions used to focus their attention on obtaining a good standard of pay for their members but more recently unions are concentrating on protecting the individual rights of their members. This may mean providing legal and financial support and advice for members who feel their employer has discriminated against them or dismissed them unfairly.
Trade unions aim to:

Improve the pay of workers.
Improve working conditions and secure longer holidays.
Protect members' jobs.
Provide local, social and welfare facilities.
