Fascinating and readable history of the National Union of Railwaymen, once one of Britain's largest unions, as the Beeching Era led to drastic cuts in the labor force. This book examines the impact these changes had on the men and women who maintained the railway and the impact on their union. The NUR's reaction to the Beeching closures of the 1960s and the Industrial Relations Act of 1971, its policies on the closed shop, inter-union rivalries, representation in Parliament and the constitution of the Labour Party are treated authoritatively by the author who had free access to all the union's records. Since the NUR also had a large membership in London Transport, the National Bus Co., the British Docks Board and in British Transport Hotels, the problems of organizing the workforce in those areas are also examined. 459 pages with index.
