Summary note
A file of correspondence, press material, and reports concerning trade unions in Yugoslavia. The documents contain a report by the British labour attaché in Belgrade on "Yugoslavia and Yugoslav trade unions", which discusses the relationship between Yugoslav trade unions and the ruling League of Communists of Yugoslavia -- the limited power afforded to trade unions -- and how strikes are "non-existent but not illegal". Other documents cover a meeting of the Yugoslav Trade Union Congress -- and a report produced by the Congress, which outlines the aims and policies of Yugoslav trade unionism, and the benefits afforded to Yugoslav workers who join a trade union, including education and health care. The documents also discuss a visit by an African trade unionist to Belgrade, and their subsequent visit to London to study a course on trade unionism -- and a visit to Yugoslavia by Victor Feather, the Assistant Secretary of the British Trade Union Congress.
