Asked in Definitions
What is the difference between a Federation and an Association?
An association is a union of persons or companies for a common purpose or object. Like an employees association. A federation is a union of various unions. Like Federation of Chambers of Commerce or Federation of various Trade unions (may be bank employees unions, civil aviation employees unions, government employees unions, etc.)
Why do people join labor unions?
Usually people are pressured to join unions. Unions serve the purpose of increasing costs and driving businesses overseas. They served a purpose years ago, but are now much more trouble than they are worth. Rather than advancing the cause of improving the US economy, they are powers unto themselves and interested only in their own agenda.
