Recent Developments & Key Issues in Trade Union Law
Around one quarter of employees in the UK is a member of a trade union. Although that is certainly a lot less than the 1970s (when membership peaked) it is still a significant number.
It is important, therefore, to understand the law relating to trade unions, the protection that members have and the law relating to industrial action.
