Abstract

Hugh Scanlon is obviously attempting a killing. But is his victim going to be the employers, who say his current wage claim would wipe out half the country's engineering firms? Or is he going to use his million‐and‐a‐quarter members to try and crush the IR Act, the hated measure he once said might cause a general strike? And, has he got the strength to do either? Ian Murray, of The Times labour staff, reports from Blackpool on the manoeuvres which started at the TUC conference.
