About the book
This book is the third in a series of Comparative Notes published by the Institute of Employment Rights.
Professor Towers assesses how far the new British statutory recognition procedure will contribute towards a revival of British trade union representation and collective bargaining in the light of the experience of the United States where a similar procedure operates.
He concludes that when measured against the criterion of fairness or effectiveness, the outcome for US trade unions has been disappointing and notes that UK unions may want to revisit the issues of bargaining unit criteria, the automatic procedure and the ballot procedure when seeking future amendments to the legislation.
