About the manifesto
The largest unions in the UK have given their backing to a new manifesto authored by renowned academic
Professor Keith Ewing, and leading barrister John Hendy QC. Reconstruction after the crisis: a manifesto for collective bargaining, published by think tanks the Institute of Employment Rights (IER) and Class, was
launched on Sunday 08 September 2013 at TUC Congress.
Creating a labour market underpinned by collective bargaining, particularly sectoral bargaining – that is,
collective bargaining on an industry-by-industry basis – is demonstrated in the publication to be an
effective method of stimulating economic growth.
