The Conservative government's Trade Union Bill threatens the most sweeping and radical tightening of the rules on industrial action and trade union representation seen since the Thatcher era of the 1980s, with a battery of restrictive measures that could potentially rebalance power in the workplace, reduce the capacity of unions to represent their members at work and undermine the ability of workers to take collective action to protect their interests.

This special one-day British Universities Industrial Relations Association conference will bring together leading industrial relations academics with national trade union officers and other practitioners to discuss the nature of the proposed changes and their implications for industrial relations, employee voice at the workplace and trade union representation.
