TUC leaflet - Anti-Employment Legislation, 1982

The Conservative Government's Second Employment Act, introduced by the Employment Secretary Norman Tebbit in 1982, restricted further the right to take effective industrial action and gave employers the right to dismiss strikers. The Act also undermined union membership agreements and allowed unions to be sued for huge sums in damages.
