breakaway union

breakaway union

a TRADE UNION formed by disaffected members of another union who feel that their particular interests are given insufficient weight in union decision-making. Such unions rarely have much impact because managements are often reluctant to recognize an additional union for COLLECTIVE BARGAINING purposes (the Union of Democratic Mine-workers in the UK coal industry is an important exception).
