Devo-Work: Collective Bargaining responses

In the first instance, we look at how unions can address the possibility of the removal or the lack of national pay bargaining through the experience of ASLEF and the privatisation of British Rail.

While this is an experience many have experienced over the last thirty years, the ASLEF example offers a clear learning outcome over how terms and conditions can be protected and even bettered under new arrangements.

Scotland and the Fair Work Convention and Framework move us past the idea of charters and into frameworks, albeit without legislative backing, which can not only create a climate of good work but also offer unions launch pads to extend collective bargaining and recognition.
