Abstract

As trade unions have declined, a representation gap has appeared in British workplaces over the past two decades. In examining the nature of this gap and assessing current attempts to close it, this book draws on original research from the ESRC's prestigious Future of Work Programme. In this edited collection, some of the UK's leading employment relations researchers present insightful evidence of new developments in trade union and worker representation, focusing on key themes such as partnership, gender, and worker attitudes and organization in the 'knowledge economy'. Breaking new ground, contributors examine not only the consequence of legislative change for previously unorganized employees, but also the diverse ways in which unrepresented workers are now being given a voice. Altogether The Future of Worker Representation is a stimulating and thoroughly researched book which gives the reader genuine understanding of the ways in which the democratic deficit in many workplaces can be challenged.
