A registered trade union, under the Indian Trade Union Act, is entitled to various benefits, privileges, protections, immunities and exclusive rights, compared to unregistered trade unions. The immunities enjoyed by a trade union can be of two types: civil immunity and criminal immunity. These immunities provide the members and officers of registered trade unions relaxation against various civil and criminal liabilities. The basic rights of trade unions rest on these immunities, without which the proper functioning of trade unions is almost impossible.
