Why Do Employees Join Trade Union?
Workers join trade unions because they are constrained by circumstances to do so; and because they want:

1. To get economic security; that is, they want steady employment with an adequate income

2. To restrain the management from taking any action which is irrational, illogical, discriminatory or prejudicial to the interests of labour. Workers desire that the assignment of jobs, transfers, promotions, the maintenance of discipline, layoffs, retirement, rewards and punishments should be on the basis of pre-determined policy and on the basis of what is fair and just

3. To communicate their views, aims, ideas, feelings and frustrations to the management; that is, they want to have an effective voice in discussions which affect their welfare

4. To secure protection from economic hazards beyond their control; for example, illness, accident, death, disability, unemployment and old age

5. To get along with their fellow-workers in a better way and to gain respect in the eyes of their peers; and

6. To get a job through the good offices of a trade union.

Plants get unionized for three reasons – dissatisfaction, lack of power and union instrumentality. Dissatisfied employees seek union membership to improve work situation. Employees believe unionization fetch them power. Power, in turn, is believed to remove dissatisfaction. Employees take unions as instruments to remove dissatisfaction.

In general, the expectation that work will satisfy personal preferences induces satisfaction or dissatisfaction with work. As the level of dissatisfaction increases, individual workers seek to change their work situation. If they fail, and if the positive consequences of unionization seem to outweigh the negative ones, individual workers will be inclined to join the union.
