An union is an organization that develops where a workforce/student body, who have a common trade or work/study at the same establishment, band together in order to take advantage of the increased power of collective bargaining.

As organized laborEdit

In 2372, the Guild of Restaurant and Casino Employees was briefly formed to obtain better working conditions for Quark's personnel, going on strike in the process. (DS9: "Bar Association")

In 2387, in the wake of the Destruction of Romulus, the unions of Hydran chemical industries located on Mysidia went on strike. (RIS Bouteina: "Midwife")

Student unionsEdit

Student unions are student-run organizations that represent students both within a school and externally on local and national student-related issues. As such, student unions were common fixtures in Federation and Lyran universities.

21st century Quebec student unions worked by tiers: department-level unions, like the PHYSUM, was subordinate to institution-level unions, like the FAÉCUM, themselves grouped into province-wide unions. However, department-level unions held the power to declare strikes independently of upper tiers. (Star Trek: The Stoneship Files: "Rode the 300", "The Defector (TSF)")

The Malachor V University Student Union coordinated the 2401 student strike on Malachor V, organizing a five million-strong protest in Tinseltown. (Star Trek: The Stoneship Files: "The Defector")
