British Trade Unionism Against the Trades Union Congress

Tuesday, February 1, 1983

Gerald A. Dorfman's study examines the weakness and consequent ineffectiveness of Britain's central union spokesgroup, the Trades Union Congress. Professor Dorfman asserts that Britain's economic condition, as well as the goals and purposes of trade unionism itself, has been among its casualties. So too has the collectivist political process which until recently drew the union movement into a powerfully influential role at the centre of national decision-making.
