    In Place of Strife (1969): Trade Union legal rights & responsibilities revisited

    Modern Records Centre, Warwick University

    The conflict between the Harold Wilson Labour Government & the trade unions over Barbara Castle's 1969 White Paper ‘In Place of Strife’ was one of the pivotal moments of post-war British Industrial Relations. In response to Peter Dorey’s new book on In Place of Strife, this seminar has two parts. In the morning there is a historical reassessment of the political episode. In the afternoon, we consider the implications for current Labour Party policy on trade unions.
