Using the timeline
Use the spanner icon on the bottom right of the timeline to perform the following functions:
Looking for news on a specific bill or minister? Try searching their name in the search box. The search function is quite sensitive so if you have no luck, try to make your search term as simple as possible. If you still have no luck, let us know, we might have missed something.
Pick a category
Only interested in equality news? Or health and safety? Filter by category for a clearer view.
Pick a view
The timeline defaults to its standard view, but you can choose to make categories clearer by introducing more colour into the categories, or see the stories laid out in category bands.
Spacing and zoom
Want to take a closer look at a particularly busy period? Zoom in and increase the spacing between stories to see events more clearly.
About the timeline
Since they came into power in May 2010, the Coalition government has launched an ideological attack on the rights of trade unions and workers.
The timeline above charts the introduction of policies, the airing of proposals and the calls of Tory backbenchers and right-wing think tanks that have threatened the rights of UK workers since the Coalition took power.
It is a new resource that we believe is the only place currently available to view information on the Coalition's ideological drive against workers in a comprehensive and interactive way.
The timeline is constantly updated as news articles and other details emerge, and so is always a work in progress. If you feel we have missed anything that would add to the timeline, please contact Sarah Glenister.
