The orthodox view of the trade organization seems to be that if
not incorporated such an organization is a mere voluntary association.
It is true that in Bonsor's Case [1] the House of Lords attributed to a trade
union a "neo-corporate" status which enabled the union to be sued in tort.'
This concession to the realities of the situation, however9 was a limited
one. There is no suggestion in that case or in any other that the trade
organization is for all purposes a "neo-corporation".
The courts have over a period of time evolved rules for dealing with
the affairs of voluntary associations and other rules for dealing with
those of corporations. The law, at least until Bonsor's Case. has recog-
nized no tertium quid.
Does the accepted dichotomy cover the whole field? If so, since
most trade organizations are not incorporated, does this mean that in the
absence of legislation. membership of a 20th century trade union is to be
protected only to the same extent as membership of a 19th century whist
In the following pages I do not purport to answer either question
conclusively. What I do attempt is to examine the logical and historical
validity of the accepted rules relating to expulsion from voluntary
associations in order to consider the applicability of such rules to
questions involving membership of trade organizations.
