The purpose of this paper is to consider how far different unions representing white‐collar workers fulfil the expectations of their memberships. In order to focus upon this problem we intend to concentrate on the area of white‐collar membership of predominantly manual workers' unions: in particular we shall take as examples the cases of the steel and mining industries. At a time when major trade unions representing the white‐collar labour force are competing for membership on an unprecedented scale and when proposals for union amalgamations are currently being voiced, the appropriateness of union policies for this category of employees and their approval by the rank and file are of obvious relevance.
