The relationship between the Conservative Party and the trade unions has been at best uneasy and more often than not hostile. The Conservative Party and the Trade Unions examines the attitudes and policies of the Conservative Party towards the trade unions from the nineteenth century onwards, linking these to wider political and economic circumstances, and the key personalities involved.

It explores the debates and disputes, from the early nineteenth century to the present day, that have shaped Tory attitudes towards the unions.
