February 8-14th is HeartUnions Week organised by the TUC. A range of activities are planned to highlight the value of trade unions, the contribution of union reps, and to oppose aspects of the Trade Union Bill currently before Parliament.
The TUC Library has received a collection of the material produced by the TUC to promote the campaign, including t-shirts, posters, pens, badges and leaflets (see pic above).
Previously on this blog we have published posts discussing how similar trade union legislation in the past has been challenged by the union movement, particularly the 1927 Trade Disputes Act and the range of trade union legislation in the 1970s and 1980s. This week we will be continuing to post a number of items on the blog that reveal more of this historical context.
