United Kingdom - Chronology of labour law updated - June 30, 2017

The Institute of Employment Rights IER has published a very useful and updated overview of the history of the British labour legislation (1979-2017) with the aim to expose the impact of Tory-inspired legislation for trade unionists. The last example in a long row is the 2016 Trade Union Act that, according to IER, aims to make it extremely difficult or impossible for workers to engage in lawful industrial action, and to starve the trade unions and the labour movement of funds. The IER was created in 1989 as a thinktank to inform the debate around trade union rights and labour law by providing information, critical analysis, and policy ideas through a network of academics, researchers and lawyers.
