Transcript 36 GREAT BRITAIN AFTER THE WAR. B.—The Dangers to Trade Unionism after the War? 1. Can the Trade Unions rely upon the Government "guarantees"? (a) The Ministry of Munitions has taken power in the Munitions Acts to compel every employer to keep a record of changes made in his establishment. But it is general knowledge that such records have often been imperfectly kept, and that no employer has yet been prosecuted for neglect; Trade Unions have often failed to obtain copies of the record. (b) Changed industrial conditions may well render it impossible for tiie Government to restore the status quo ante—no matter how sincerely it may desire to do so. (c) The Government's masterful control of industry during the war in itself constitutes a menace to the independence of Trade Unionism. 2. Trade Unionists will awake in a new Industrial World. Lines of demarcation between crafts largely obliterated— limits of work between skilled and semi-skilled men and women obsolete—workers making a greatly increased output— new methods of factory organisation introduced—new machinery installed—the State become a partner in industry —new demands being made, especially for a maximum of production, in order to restore trade. 3. Unemployment and the Probability of Competition among the Workers Themselves. Note that there is grave danger of a widespread slump in trade, either immediately the war ends, or after no.long interval. Note that even if trade is not seriously depressed, demobilisation in itself threatens Trade Unionism to its foundations. (Chapter I.) It has been said that "A state of industrial dislocation, with unemployment prevalent, and an organised endeavour of philanthropists and Labour Exchange officials to get millions of discharged soldiers into situations by any means and at any price, in preference to anyone else, offers the most serious menace to Trade Union rates and conditions that has ever occurred."
