The ILO is the ILO, not the IEO— that is, it is the International Labour Organisation not the International Employment Organisation. And the ILO’s current organising mantra is ‘Decent Work’, not ‘Decent Employment’. 12 All of this could signal an ability on the part of our narrative to change with the times. Or, on the other hand it could, as Harry points out, simply be a sort of public last nail in the coffin of our subject, a particularly brash and insensitive ‘rubbing in’ and celebration of the end of our discipline which only reconfirms how desperate it all is.

There are many dimensions of, and possible routes into, this compelling story, but let me start with the idea of contract. The labour law narrative takes the category of contract law as prior and primitive. In one way the entire story can be seen as a story of the ‘real life of contract law’, as opposed to the abstract and general rules of general contract law. It is what happens when the rubber of contract law hits the real and hard road of the working life. Part of the reasoning here is ‘historical’.
