  • The Treasury Agreement
  • We'll give you higher better wages and good working conditions if you promise not to strike!
  • Okay! We'll agree to that!
  • Partnership
  • Our jobs are equally as important in helping to win this war!
  • The Great Charter for Labour
  • Lloyd George enlisted the Trade Unions as an essential component of the war effort in return for accepting non-strike agreements. The Unions were guaranteed improved working conditions and wages.
  • Conscription
  • I don't agree with forcing boys and men to fight in a war!
  • This essentially made the Unions essential partners in the war effort, participating in the running of the state.
  • Statistics
  • They could no longer be considered as outsiders and this was considered as the Great Charter for Labour
  • The Introduction of Conscription
  • In April 1916, after a public disagreement with DLG, Asquith accepted conscription after attempting to block it.
  • Conscription will be the best thing for our country!
  • In September 1914, 450,000 had volunteered for the war effort. By December 1915, 55,000 per month was the norm.
  • Conscription was introduced in January 1916 after the resignation of the Home Secretary, John Simon. This strengthened the growing split of the Liberal Party.
