Préparation agrégation anglais civilisation britannique 46

Le Royaume-Uni à l'épreuve de la crise 1970-1979

The closing down of industries in Britain caused much hardship and unemployment in the 1970s. Governments or political leaders had a series of responses - from nationalization to tax cuts depending on their political ideas. Trade unions sometimes organized strikes against redundancies. But this documentary is about another response from trade unionist: the alternative corporate plan. Workers in Lucas Aerospace wanted to persuade their company to make different, more socially useful products, instead of closing factories.

The documentary is here.
