The Evolution of Trade Unions in Britain

Abstract

Social partnership and collective organization are dissimilar as regards the explanation of the development of the capitalist system, on the one hand emphasizing cooperation between management and labour and on the other the contrary. I indicate that the two propositions are not real substitutes, and provided that the environmental factors are favourable, can become the component parts of a coordinated design for the revitalization of British trade unions.
