The Right to Strike: From the Trade Disputes Act 1906 to a Trade Union Freedom Bill 2006

By Prof Keith Ewing

Published in January 2007

This book tells the story of the Trade Disputes Act 1906, in celebration of its centenary. That Act was one of the most important pieces of labour legislation ever passed by a British Parliament. It provided very simple legal protection for the right to strike for sixty-five years, and left a legacy which is found on the statute book to this day.

The substance of today’s law however, is far removed and much weaker than the position established in 1906. For that reason, the Trade Union Freedom Bill is designed to soften some of the harder edges of the Thatcher bequest.
