Description

This well-known text draws on an extensive range of sources and materials to present a thorough, yet clear, introduction to the subject of industrial or employee relations for those studying at undergraduate, postgraduate or post-experience level. It provides a framework of concepts and knowledge for understanding and analysing approaches to the subject, the roles of the major participants, the issue confronting them and the strategies and processes used. The fourth edition retains the structure and international focus of the previous edition, but has been updated throughout and includes several new learning features.

Features

  • The text is divided into four distinct parts: Perspectives, Participants, Processes and Practices.
  • Each chapter opens with a definition section, setting the parameters for each chapter.
  • Examples and case studies draw from a variety of industries, both manufacturing and service sector.
  • Country profiles reflect the diversity of approaches and institutions around the world.

New to this Edition

  • The text has been thoroughly updated to reflect changes in the socio-political context of industrial relations in the UK, following the election of the Labour Government in 1997.
  • Learning objectives and suggested key issues for the student to bear in mind have been introduced at the beginning of each chapter.
  • Each chapter now concludes with a student activity, which encourages them to explore the "real world" of industrial relations.
  • Brand new 2-colour text design.
