Major conference on union recognition
The Labour Research Department is holding a major conference on union recognition.

The conference takes place as the debate over the content of the government's proposals on union recognition mounts and presents a unique opportunity for trade unionists to discuss successful strategies to win recognition.

Speakers at the conference all have direct experience of dealing with recognition and most have recently concluded successful recognition agreements. The speakers include Grace Mitchell from the communication workers CWU, Tony Burke GPMU and chair of the TUC New Unionism Project, Eddie Lynch deputy general secretary of the steelworkers ISTC, John Toner Northern Regional Officer of the journalists NUJ and a speaker from Unison. A new research paper on recognition and derecognition by Dr Gregor Gall on the University of Stirling and Dr Sonia McKay of the Labour Research Department will be presented to the conference.

The conference takes place on Saturday 27 March 1999 at Congress House, Great Russell St, London WC1. It runs from 10.30 to 4.30pm. The LRD annual general meeting, open to all LRD affiliates takes place during the lunch break 12.30 - 2pm.

To register for a place, please write to Labour Research Department, 78 Blackfriars Road, London NW2 6AP enclosing a cheque for ?29.38 (LRD affiliates) or ?41.13 (non affiliates). The price includes lunch and a copy of the research paper.
