I should probably be more incensed that my council has written to tell me that basically there will be no refuse collection service from here to eternity and I need to be turning the garden into a landfill site. But I can't help but wince at "Trade Unions have announced ..."
Now, I was taught it was Trades Union like Directors General and Courts Martial but instinctively it doesn't feel the same. General and Martial are adjective, Union isn't? Wiki reckons the proper plural is Trade Unions particularly as most represent a single trade rather than a group of trades?
Trade Union - plural?
