Government Versus Trade Unionism in British Politics Since 1968

Friday, November 2, 1979

This study examines the relationship between the British government and the trade union movement in the management of the economy since 1968. It concludes that government is gradually winning reluctant union cooperation. The author suggests that the growing internationalization of economic decision making, especially decision making in the European Economic Community, may allow the British government to employ its novel role as spokesman for British interests to produce new cooperation with trade unionism at home.
