Every union has people who are authoritative enough to act as a bridge between its members with company officials and owners on key areas like worker rights, benefit entitlement and working conditions, as well as the union entitlements of members under the union contract.  These are the Union Representatives who are often lawyers and are industry specialists in mediating between labor and management.
