Informations and abstract

Keywords: Legal strategies; Union organisations; Workers’ Statute; Law as politics.

The paper reflects on the legacy of the Workers’ Statute on the relation between legal strategies and trade union organizations. It does so in the light of the legal mobilization theory elaborated in studies on law and social movements. The paper highlights how the Workers’ Statute transformed the legal system creating the opportunities for trade union organizations to use legal action for political purposes, retraces such uses in the practices of enforcement of the Statute and eventually concludes with some observations on the legacy of such practices in relation to the current challenges facing labour today.
