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

    Modern Records Centre, Warwick University

    The conflict between the Harold Wilson Labour Government and 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 Comrades in Conflict: Labour, the Trade Unions and 1969's 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.
