Reconstruction after the crisis: a manifesto for collective bargaining

Submitted by sglenister on Thu, 19/09/2013 - 12:24

By Professor Keith Ewing and John Hendy QC

Published in September 2013

This publication presents an evidence-based policy proposal for the state encouragement of collective bargaining, and particularly sectoral bargaining, as a tried-and-tested means of reducing income inequality and stimulating the sustainable recovery of a strong and resilient economy.

About the book

The authors of this report set out a timely argument for the introduction of a statutory framework for collective bargaining. Keith Ewing and John Hendy trace the historical background to the current economic crisis - including the dismantling of trade union rights by successive governments since 1980 - and set out a viable alternative for economic growth based on international law and best European practices. The end result is a considered and fully evidence-based policy recommendation summed up in a succinct ten point manifesto for collective bargaining, which has already attracted the support of nine major unions: Unite, Unison, GMB, NUT, PCS, CWU, UCU, ATL and RMT.
