This text covers all areas of collective labour law, statutory and common law. Relevant international provisions are also highlighted, together with the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights and other international bodies. Recent developments are located in their thematic context, so enabling the reader to obtain an integrated analysis of areas such as statutory rights of representation and consultation, industrial action and union governance. It contains sufficient technical detail to meet the needs of the specialist labour law practitioner and academic, but is presented in a style which makes it accessible to those with no detailed prior knowledge of the subject.
