Importance of Labour UnionsTrade unions are of great significance for an economy because of the reason that they create congenial relation between the workers and the management and help a lot in developing mutual understanding among them. This brings industrial peace, which becomes an effective stimulation for the growth and expansion of industries in a country.
Trade unions help the employers by extending cooperation in settlement of labour disputes. In the absence of trade unions it becomes difficult if it is not possible for the employers to contract the individual workers and find out their views on certain issues related to the disputes. Trade unions also assist the employers in labour administration and control. The efficiency of workers is also improved through trade unions and as such, the employers are benefited.
