Overview

Uniting the Tailors: Trade Unionism amoungst the Tailors of London and Leeds 1870-1939 by Anne J. Kershen

This book is not only about the tailoring industry and its trade unions; it is about the experience of eastern European immigrants in a trade as old as the Bible and yet as new as the electric sewing machine; it is about the role of women in a new industry and about the impact of socio-economic change on fashion. Finally, it is about the way in which sub-divisions and differences were accommodated under the umbrella of one particular trade union.
