Union representation

“ ... it is of the essence of the right to join a trade union for the protection of their interests that employees should be free to instruct or permit the union to make representations to their employer or to take action in support of their interests on their behalf. If workers are prevented from so doing, their freedom to belong to a trade union, for the protection of their interests, becomes illusory.” European Court of Human Rights in the case of Wilson, National Union of Journalists and Others v. the United Kingdom, 2nd October 2002.
