Sometimes, the implementation of a union can help workers ensure they are receiving fair treatment in the workplace. Many industries have existing unions, such as teachers, nurses, electricians and other skilled tradespeople. However, not everyone has a union that they can join, and certainly not all workplace problems can be solved by unions.
