Abstract

The Employment Act 1990 is the sixth piece of major industrial relations and trade union legislation brought in by the Tory government since 1979. Each of this legislation continues the step by step reforms which, — in the belief of this goverment, — are needed to counteract the adverse effects on the economic performance and efficiency of this country. The political aims of this legislation are also obvious; they weaken trade unionism. In two Green Papers, namely “Removing barriers to employment” and “Unofficial action and the law” the government identified a number of “weaknesses” and “evils” in the industrial relations and trade union system; which are now dealt with by the 1990 Act.
