About this book

A representation gap has appeared in the British workplace as trade unions have declined. This book presents original research material from the ESRC's Future of Work programme to assess current attempts to close the representation gap. Part One examines initiatives to restore the fortunes of the trade union movement through organizing, partnership and the representation of minorities in the workforce. Part Two looks at non-union representation and the role that works councils, voluntary organizations and single-issue campaigns can play in giving British workers a new voice at work.
