Historical Studies in Industrial Relations 43 (2022)

The 2022 issue of Historical Studies in Industrial Relations has been delayed by the Covid pandemic which has compounded all the problems of working in universities today (which do not need to be spelt out here). Early submissions are invited for the 2023 issue. Papers that explore themes raised in the new issue are welcome, as are those on the rise and fall of ‘business unionism’ (with particular reference to the Electrical, Electronic, Telecommunications and Plumbing Union), the marriage bar, and discrimination against black and ethnic minority workers – three notable ‘gaps’ in the journal’s coverage.
