Labour relations and law at a basic level are an extremely important part of the knowledge-set of any competent shop steward, but most books written on the subject are aimed at a different market, and in language, complexity and bias are not suited for easy consumption by shop stewards

Chris Hickley provides the basic knowledge that a shop steward requires to be adequately informed about key labour relations principles and issues.
