THE STATUS OF ORGANIZED LABOUR AN OUTLINE OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE LAW IN GREAT BRITAIN, THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA
AbstractIn this article the author discusses the development of labour law within Great Britain, the United States, and Canada. First, he conducts an examination of the labour legislation in Great Britain and particularly notes that there is no statute compelling trade union recognition by employers, and that collective agreements are not legally enforceable in Great Britain’s courts. He then examines labour legislation from the United States, and includes a discussion of the legal process of injunction, the employers’ use of anti-union contracts, as well as a discussion of the particular importance of the National Labour Relations Act in the American labour movement. Finally, the author discusses Canadian labour legislation and notes the important division of jurisdiction between the federal and provincial legislatures. He also discusses the issues surrounding trade unions, picketing, and collective agreements within Canada. He concludes by making suggestions for how Canadian legal standards in relation to labour law can be improved, in light of a comparison with the labour legislation from Great Britain and the United States.
