It is a mediatory body which helps to settle disputes between workers and management.

Additional answer

A more likely purpose is that they fight for their members' rights and better pay. To say they are mediatory bodies forgets that often a mediatory body is needed to help settle a dispute between a union (representing the workers) and the management.

an assosication of workers in an industry or groups of industries who join together in their common interests to regulate relations between employers and employees
