Item description for United They Stood: The Story of the UK Firefighters' Dispute 2002-2004 by Roger Seifert...
This book tells the story of the recent British firefighters' industrial dispute, which lasted from 2002 to 2004. It provides a detailed account of its history as well as insights into the political maneuvering that occurred between the union and the government in this high-profile public sector clash in which each side sought to define modernization in its own terms. Shedding light on the divergent motivations and perspectives of the two parties in conflict, and demonstrating why matters of compensation and work conditions are inseparable in such disputes, this unique behind-the-scenes look at contemporary industrial relations documents this significant challenge fared by the Blair government.
