Broadly there is no difference, both are registered bodies. Since officers can not form trade union under labour laws, which specifies certain conditions, hence officers form Association. My answer is valid for trade, as asked by you. Both take care of the interest of its members.

Trade Union is only for the working class and Association can be for anything under the sun.

Trade unions are basically for protecting the working labour class and association is of any people irrespective of category.

Trade Unions hold the managements to ransom, while Associations resort to mostly blackmail.
