servicing model

Quick Reference

A form of trade unionism in which activism and self-representation by union members are discouraged in favour of the provision of services by paid full-time officers. These services may include collective bargaining or the provision of advice, representation, and consumer benefits to individual union members. The servicing model is often counterposed to the organizing model.
