This article analyses the socio-political interactions which shaped an early colonial union statute that constituted a milestone because of its early passage, draconian nature and wider influence in the Empire. We analyse the interactions between the Governor on the one hand and local and international actors on the other to create the first trade union law in Mauritius. The law had wider effects in the Empire. Colonial Office officials pressured the Governor to overcome local resistance to legislation, but this opposition and his attitudes influenced the law’s content.
