Description - Representing Workers by Howard F. Gospel

Employment relations are at a crossroad. Worker representation has historically been dominated by trade union channels in the advanced economies, but with the decline in union membership other forms of representation are increasingly significant. Representing Workers is the result of significant research addressing key issues underlying these developments. A group of internationally-renowned employment relations specialists, under the Leverhulme Foundation Future of Trade Unionism Programme, consider issues such as: trends in trade union membership; factors behind the decline of union membership; young workers and trade unionism; the law and union recognition; European influences on worker representation; non-union representation; trade unionism in the context of new forms of representation; enhancing the appeal of unions. This timely new study of worker representation presents powerful analysis of such issues. Representing Workers is one of the most broad-ranging studies of representation and is essential reading for anyone studying or working in employment relations.
