What is a trade union?

A trade union is an organisation made up of employees who join together to preserve and progress their conditions of employment.

By working collectively, and through a trade union, employees of a company can bargain for better pay and terms and conditions for all workers.

A trade union campaigns for better circumstances for its members and also provides individual assitance and services to their members around legal support and workplace advice.

More than six million people in the UK belong to a trade union.
