A body that represents the interests of a body of employees, often associated with many different employers. A trades union is not a corporation (see: Corporation) and therefore does not have strict legal identity apart from its members. But a trades union does have some legal obligations. It can, for example, take part in civil court proceedings in its own right, as distinct from its members.
