Voices at Work

K. D. Ewing

Oxford University Press

This chapter explains the significance of political voice for trade unions in the light of its historical treatment. It traces the development of workers’ political voice from constraints imposed by the common law in the UK in the nineteenth century to legislative provision (and subsequent restriction again) in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The chapter concludes by considering the fresh challenges of (neo-)liberalism in the UK and elsewhere
