What is a Labour Union ? A labour union is a group of workers who form an organization to gain:
A voice in improving socio-economic interests and rights at workplaces.
Respect on the job.
Decent wages and benefits.
More flexibility to meet work and family needs.
Protection against occupational safety and health at work.
Unions have made life better for workers by improving wages and working conditions, helping to formulate laws, fighting child labour, establishing mechanisms for solving labour-management disputes and protecting workers′ safety and health. When workers form unions, their companies and communities also benefit.
