Industrial Relations Bill

by Atkinson, Conrad



Conrad Atkinson's film was made in response to the Heath Government's Bill of 1970, which became an Act in 1971. The Act restricted Trade Union rights, and led to strikes by dock workers and miners. Here Atkinson's film is symbolic, and its meaning enigmatic; on other occasions he used film to document specific industrial disputes, such as that at Brannans, a factory in his home town of Cleator Moor. The film is silent.
