Cosy Co-operation under Strain: Industrial relations in the Yorkshire Woollen Industry 1919-1930, by Chris Wrigley

Published by Borthwick Papers/University of York in 1987, 33 pages. A5 size booklet (N3957)

The first paragraph: The wool industry was one of the few major industries to set up joint industrial councils after the First World War. Other important industries, such as coal, cotton, iron and steel, engineering and shipbuilding, did not adopt proposals for Whitley Committees. In the case of wool, there appears to have been strong union and employer organisation support for the Yorkshire joint committee until the 1925 dispute in the industry, and it still operated until 1930.....

This booklet provides an excellent introduction to the history of industrial relations and trade unions in the Yorkshire woollen industry in the period immeadiately following the first world war, which of course included the NAUTT (The National Association of Unions in the Textile Trade)

Condition of the booklet is generally very good. The covers have some very light wear along the edges but are clean and tidy, the staple spine is intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound. The first inside page has been clipped across the top right hand corner
