First and foremost, what is a trade union?
A professional union is a professional or categorical organization of a private nature which aims to defend the material and moral interests of its members. Professional unions have as their sole object the study, defense and development of the economic, social and moral interests of their members. In democratic countries, these organizations are independent of the State (but recognized by it) and governed by a set of laws which specify their status, the modalities, the guarantees and the limits of their exercise. This type of organization can bring together employees or members of employers. The employers are all business owners. One can conceive of the employers as the elite of the bourgeoisie, as a social class. Attention by “boss” we mean “business leaders, entrepreneurs” as opposed to managers.
