In 2001 TUC Congress agreed to establish and promote a Charter of Workers' Rights. Since then the Institute of Employment Rights has worked through its unique network of academic experts, practising lawyers and trade union officials to develop ideas for such a Charter. This book - and the summary that accompanies it - is the culmination of that work. In 2001 TUC Congress agreed to establish and promote a Charter of Workers' Rights. Since then the Institute of Employment Rights has worked through its unique network of academic experts, practising lawyers and trade union officials to develop ideas for such a Charter. This book - and the summary that accompanies it - is the culmination of that work. With a Foreword by John Monks and sponsorship from a wide selection of unions large and small, the main report highlights the need for such a Charter. It begins with an analysis of the neo-liberal economic agenda and argues robustly that unconstrained markets will not deliver social justice or economic efficiency. The report then outlines the need to incorporate international standards into our national laws and goes on to detail those international treaties freely ratified by the UK but too frequently breached by our framework of laws. Finally the report sets out those fundamental values which should guide the development of a Charter including social justice, equality, dignity, respect, participation, democracy, freedom, solidarity, fairness and security at work. The following chapters then look at different aspects of individual and collective rights at work with each ending with a series of specific policy recommendations. The final chapter brings together the ideas contained throughout the report and presents a 10-point Charter. The report concludes by calling for an audit of all UK labour law to ensure that none conflicts with international standards. This report is a unique contribution to the debate around the future of employment and trade union law. It provides an excellent resource for those engaged in the Government's Review of the Employment Relations Act and is a powerful tool for all those campaigning for improved rights at work. Its emphasis on the need to increase collective bargaining and the role of unions in the workplace challenges the very basis of the neo-liberal agenda and offers an alternative vision for the future. The summary has been produced as a short, jargon-free document for easy access by trade unionists. It contains the 10-point Charter. Each Charter point is then accompanied by a detailed list of the international treaties, which the UK has voluntarily ratified but fails to honour.
