Organizational rights: Minimum membership rights

Does the number fixed hinder the establishment of organizations?

“The establishment of a trade union may be considerably hindered, or even rendered impossible, when legislation fixes the minimum number of members of a trade union at obviously too high a figure, as is the case, for example, where legislation requires that a union must have at least 50 founder members.”

CFA Compilation of 2018, para. 437

“The legal requirement that there must be a minimum number of 20 members to form a union does not seem excessive and, therefore, does not in itself constitute an obstacle to the formation of a trade union.”
