The Right to Belong to a Union

  • Edward Benson
Part of the Industrial Relations in Practice book series (IRPS)


The benefits to be gained from membership of a trade union lie principally in the bargaining power of a large group of individuals, which individuals acting on their own do not possess. Vital to this bargaining power is the right to join and remain a member of a union. The law recognises that this should not lightly be interfered with, whether by employers, employees or trade unions themselves.
