First published in 1905, this book offers a perspective on the aims and objectives of British trade unions. It details the history, constitution and aims of the trade union, challenging the misconception that a trade union exists solely to foster strikes, harass employers and hamper industry, and discussing the many positives of such organisations. Designed to be accessible for the general public, this book covers history, organisation, function, action and influence.

Table of Contents

1. History and Extent of Trade Unions. 2. Organization and Functions of Trade Unions. 3. Larger Organizations of Trade Unions. 4. Trade Union Congress. 5. The Action and Influence of Trade Unions. 6. Conclusion.
