      Abstract

      The article provides evidence from case study research into trade union organisation and activity on the London Under-ground during the 1990s. It explores the extent to which left-wing political leadership influenced the collectivisation and mobilisation of workers in an adversarial direction, and whether or not this militant trade unionism was self-defeating compared with a more moderate approach.
