Child, John, Loveridge, Ray and Warner, Malcolm (1973) Towards an organizational study of trade unions. Sociology, 7 (1). pp. 71-91.
This paper develops modes of analysis for three major issues in the study of trade unions as organizations. These are, first, their distinctiveness as a discrete type of organization; secondly, the nature of their membership attachment; and thirdly, their twin rationales of representation and administration. The integration of these analyses within a new framework is then pursued. This framework serves to suggest propositions requiring empirical investigation and reference is made to some results from a preliminary study.
