Guide to a progressive Industrial Relations Bill
In September 2019, the IER published a Guide to a progressive Industrial Relations Bill, laying out our recommendations for the shape of the new legislation.
This free publication was launched at TUC 2019 and is available to order from from our website.
In our Guide to a progressive Industrial Relations Bill, we explain our recommendations for reform in a digestible and easy-to-read format, laying out our vision for an effective framework of labour law fit for the 21st century.
We believe this Bill will transform the world of work for millions of people, give workers a voice in parliament, in their jobs, and across the economy at large.
With new legally protected powers to speak out collectively against injustice, workers will be provided with a means to protect and improve their job security, pay and conditions.
Underlying this system will be the reinstatement of collective bargaining as the foundation of workplace relations, together with stronger employment rights and better protection against discrimination.
