    In this paper we define a new family of solutions for the class of cooperative games with transferable utility, in which the set of players exhibits a structure of a priori unions.This family is deeply connected with the Shapley value for games with transferable utility but, moreover, we assume a solidarity strong connection among all the components of each union.As a consequence of this, they are disposed to delegate one coalition of members of the union to negotiate with the other unions, and, therefore, each union will have a representative coalition.Furthermore, three interesting solutions that belong to this family of values are studied, as well as the non cooperative selection of the best representative coalition for each union.
