Trade unions - unincorporated associations, Business Law and Ethics

Trade Unions:

                  Trade Unions are registered under s.11 of the Trade Unions Act 1952 with the primary object of regulating the  relations between employees and employers. Section 27(1) of the Act provides that a registered trade union may sue or be sued under its registered name. However, s.23  provides that no suit or other legal proceedings shall be maintainable in any civil court against any registered trade union or an officer or member thereof in respect of any act done in contemplation or furtherance of a  trade dispute. s.24 bars any such suits in respect of any tortious act alleged to have been committed by or on behalf of the trade union. Under section 25, a trade  union is liable on any contract entered into by it or by an agent acting on its behalf. Under s.24 all property of a registered trade union are vested in its trustees for the use and benefit of the union and its members, and is under the control of the trustees.
