Democracy in the workplace

The paper outlines a number of proposals for (re-)establishing and extending democracy at work for consideration by the union movement. Firstly, it considers the manifest lack of democracy at work as management’s ability to act unilaterally or with the manufactured consent of workers has drastically increased over the last few decades. Then the paper outlines eight proposals which concern establishing the framework, institutions and processes for creating and enhancing democracy at work. Lastly, it discusses some of the issues involved in campaigning and mobilising to gain such reforms. JRFRightsandRespect
