Democracy at Work

Tom Schuller

The question of industrial democracy--or whether workers should have more say in the decisons that affect them--is a critical one for employees and a controversial one for management. This book takes a fresh look at the issue in light of recent changes in the structure of employment and the balance of decision making. Schuller reviews various conceptual approaches to industrial democracy, proposes his own analytical framework, and examines specific contemporary issues: pension scheme management, health and safety, industrial democracy within public services, worker directors, and the relationship between knowledge, power, and the division of labor. The book finally suggests practical ways to define and articulate the collective interests that are so vital to democracy in the workplace.
