Professor Mike Terry is an expert in trades unions and industrial relations. Of growing trades union activity he says -
“Strikes are a public demonstration that unions are alive and well and trying to do something. It keeps them in the news, raises awareness – it is a carefully orchestrated display of discontent.
“The unions sniff the possibility of slightly greater concessions in the run up to an election. They may get certain promises for the future, such as a big pay review.”
