Trade union and industrial relations
If you have a significant number of members within your organisation or business, trade unions may seek formal recognition in order to conduct collective bargaining on behalf of a group of workers. In order to do this, there is a formal procedure that needs to be followed. If successful in obtaining recognition, a trade union will then have the right to discuss the terms and conditions of their employment, known as ‘collective bargaining’ and can cover issues such as pay and hours.
