Learning about Trade Unions


I'm taking on the role of Human Resource Manager within a unionised manufacturing environment next month. I have little experience of the workings, processess and procedures of Unions so am looking for reference points or training providers which can bring me up to speed. Does anyone have any suggestions/ information sources to recommend?

  1. Possible sources of information

    Jerry: Have you tried either the TUC (sorry, a bit obvious!) or the Industrial Society? Either might have useful short publications, and possibly training courses as well.
