Trade Union Recognition Agreement

The 2010 British General Election was a disaster for party democracy as we knew it. The General Election started with the Labour Prime Minister taking advantage of an upturn in the economy and a scandal in the Conservative Party. He went to the country with opinion polls showing disbelief in both the major parties and no real enthusiasm for the Liberals. As the election progressed, the opinion polls showed both parties close, with the Liberals being squeezed. The “won’t vote” and “undecided” were very high, with both parties trying to rally their core supporters as well as appealing to the middle ground. At that point either ...
employers and employees. In Canada, employment laws related to unionized workplaces are differentiated from those relating to particular individuals. In most countries however, no such distinction is made. However, there are two broad categories of labour law. First, collective labour law relates to the tripartite relationship between employee, employer and union. Second, individual labour law concerns employees' rights at work and through the contract for work. The labour movement has been instrumental in the enacting of laws protecting labour rights in the 19th and 20th centuries. Labour rights have been integral to the ...

Set up as an “arms length” company by Labour-controlled Glasgow City Council in 2006, City Building (Glasgow) LLP (formerly the council’s Building Services Department) has enjoyed a large amount of salacious press coverage in recent months. It began with the revelation that since 2006 City Building had awarded £10 millions worth of contracts to City Refrigeration Holdings Ltd whose founder and boss, Willie Haughey, has donated over £1 million to Labour since 2003 — the biggest donor to Labour in Scotland. In the same period City Refrigeration won just one other public contract — a slightly more modest £15,000 contract with South ... market research, surveys and trends

Trade unions and strikes: a snapshot of the industrial scene
We are not going back to the old battles. I will say now that there's going to be no repeal of all Tory union laws. That is not what the country or your members want. Ballots before strikes are here to stay. No mass or flying pickets. All the ghosts of time past, they are exorcised. Leave them where they lie. So said Tony Blair in September at this year's TUC conference, in a speech which received a rather subdued response from the delegates. Blair's view is often supported by politicians and academics alike. They suggest that we now have a more rational and level headed way of conducting industrial relations in ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

In most enterprises there are no constructive labour relations or social dialogue since employers use every means to stop or undermine trade unions and to harass trade union activists. Union busting is a 4 billion dollar industry in the USA. Freedom of association: The National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) is the private sector federal labour law in the United States, and is binding on the states.

State appeals BOGOWU's illegal status
The state is appealing Justice Lakvinder Walia’s ruling recognising National Amalgamated Local and Central Government and Parastatal Workers Union (NALCGPWU) as the sole representative of employees who are eligible for representation by the union. On March 25, Justice Walila ruled that the Manual Workers Union enjoys a vested right in terms of clause 1(C) to be the sole representative of employees who are eligible for representation by the union. “I find therefore that the rights vesting in the applicant under the agreement of 13th November 1975 remain unaffected by Trade Unions and Employers Organisations Act and Trade Dispute ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Oil workers strike and occupy in Colombia
On 2 June army forces entered the plant. At time of writing they are harassing the workers, who stay overnight chaining themselves to plant equipment so that they cannot be dislodged. Since BP began oil exploration and production in Casanare, Colombia in the early 1990s, six thousand people have been assassinated and three thousand people disappeared. Every time there have been complaints or protests in opposition to BP’s interests, the community leaders concerned have been killed. This indicates an elimination strategy of violent social control. The agents have been the military and paramilitary groups, but BP as a corporation ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
