Both. They represent those who may be exploited or cannot represent themselves. Unions can hold govt to ransom when we pay for it through debt funding.

Trade unions are required for ensuring a collective representation of the employees. However they should operate within a framework which does not impede the business.

Trade unions were created to provide a voice for the general worker but some unions have become so expensive to run that all the money goes to the negotiators and people who run the unions and I have seen over the years less and less being achieved by the unions and all their powers have been eroded. If a company has a good HR team then Unions are really not needed now.
