This volume has come about through a European conference held in 1998 which was attended by both academics and trade union representatives. The inspiration for holding this conference came from two premises: in academic circles, the continuing relevance of the class concept as an analytical tool is frequently called into question; and the trade union has always been the social movement which has used this class principle to unite and defend workers. This book looks at the challenges facing trade unions, the power that they have - or don't have, and how the work force has changed over the years.
