Partnership and the High Performance Workplace - Work and Employment Relations in the Aerospace Industry

A. Danford, M. Richardson, P. Stewart, S. Tailby, M. Upchurch

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

The promotion of workplace partnership in the high performance workplace has become central to policy debates on the 'modernization' of employment relations in British industry. This book provides critical insights into the dynamics of partnership by way of in-depth case studies of employee experience in an under-researched industry noted for its high concentrations of skilled workers and graduates. Drawing on rich interview and questionnaire data, the authors highlight considerable conflicts of interest in the development of partnership that derive from the competitive capitalist environment in which management strategies operate.
