A representative is a member of a trade union who has been nominated by the employees or the union itself as its representative at the workplace.

A representative is the liaison between members in the workplace and the employer on the one hand and between members and the union on the other. A representative does not stand alone and the board and staff of a trade union help them to solve the issues that may arise and fall under the scope of the trade union.
