The last decade has seen profound changes in the law governing the rights to strike and to take industrial action in Britain. A series of Acts of Parliament and attendant codes of practice have built up a complex web of restrictions and regulations, moving the law into the centre stage of industrial conflict. The very latest measures will reach the statute book in the Employment Act 1990. This book presents a comprehensive account of how this transformation of industrial-conflict law has come about, analyzing the development of the new laws, from the sources and events which first fired Governments concerns, through the policy-making process, to the Parliamentary passage of each piece of legislation. The author sets these changes within the context of the shifts in the political and economic climate, and in attitudes towards industrial conflict, over the post-war years. The author's previous books include "A Guide to The Employment Act 1988".
