Union Organization and Activity

John Kelly, Paul Willman (eds)
Routledge (May 2004)

  • How have unions responded to the decline of membership and power that began in 1980?
  • Have unions been able to use New Labour legislation to recover lost membership?
  • What are the pros and cons of union-management partnerships in the public sector?

Union Organization and Activity is the second book in Routledge's The Future of Trade Unions in Britain series. Featuring substantial and original research on union strategies, this book offers readers a detailed analysis of the opportunities and problems faced by unions in using the new trade union recognition law. Offering new research on union strategies, this is a book that will enrich policy debates with much needed evidence.

With a multidisciplinary approach, the series brings together experts in the field of employment relations to offer three of the most informed, broad ranging and up-to-date studies available. The series is essential reading for anyone studying or working professionally with employment relations in Britain.
