Union Power: A Six Part Series

Synopsis
Produced by Granada Television and first shown on British television in 1980, this six-part investigation into the relationship between trade unions and the law follows the format of a commission of inquiry, with evidence being taken from a wide range of expert witnesses: politicians, businessmen, academics and leading trade unionists. The topics under discussion include the laws on picketing, the arguments for and against secret ballots and the advisability of consultation between trade union leaders and the Prime Minister of the day. The programmes are also available individually, at the price of £25 per episode.
