In modern conditions, the role and influence of trade unions on working conditions and the standard of living of workers has increased significantly. This influence is especially evident in relation to labor migrants. In difficult economic and social circumstances, being in a foreign country, an employee is not able to defend himself against the arbitrariness of individual employers alone; in private, it is easier to intimidate an employee, dismiss, and drag him to court. Therefore, he needs support from the trade union.
It is trade unions that are reliable and universally accepted form of representation of the interests of employees in the labor market.

– threats of reduction;
– illegal dismissal;
