Book review: A Alexandrou (ed.), Union Learning Representatives: Challenges and Opportunities

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article review

Abstract

Union learning representatives (ULRs) have developed an increasingly prominent union role (practically and as a focus of academic interest) since ULRs were given statutory rights in 2002 to ‘reasonable’ paid time off to undertake their duties. The development thereafter of equality representatives in UK unions has added another dimension to debates on specialist union representative roles, including their substantive impact on employees and workplaces, the achievement of public policy objectives and, significantly, their role in union revitalization.
