The article looks whether the trade union movement will see a resurgence and discusses employment relations and economic climate into a historical context. As influenced by labour law and other public policy measures, the employment relations climate normally moves in line with macroeconomic conditions and structural change. Employment acts in 1980 and 1982 made secondary strike action and secondary picketing illegal. There might be greater concern if the unions were to gain stronger collective legal rights.
