Article publication date: 1 January 1973


With the IR Act still the subject of seething discontent among Britain's trade unionists, Keith Mayes takes a timely look at the US Taft‐Hartley laws, aimed at putting a rein on the power of organised labour. He reports that they have fallen largely into disuse as more and more workers—among them professional people hitherto against the idea of unions—see the need for collective strength.
