Out of Print...The demand for industrial democracy has gained tremendous momentum in the West in the past few years. Few movements have made as great an impact in so short a period. Today, in one form or another, virtuaFly the entire trade union movement in Western Europe has adopted the aims of workers participation in the decision-making power of industry. Within the next few years it seems probable that the trade unions will see intro duced in ten or more countries new systems which will give workers a substantial say in the decisions that govern their working lives. The new drive is for the right of workers representatives to participate directly in the making of decisions at plant level on questions of economic production as well as personnel problems: mere rights of consultation are recognized as inadequate. At the same time there is a move to establish the rights of workers to representative participation at the board and top management levels whether on a minority or parity basis. The articles which comprise this book, both by their substance and the authority of their authors, constitute an impressive criterion of the progress which industrial democracy is making. AU the contributors are activists: among them are leaders of some of the most powerful, influential trade union organizations in the world. The organizations they lead constitute an impressive cross-section of the power of organized labour in industry to effect change and to transform a delinquent and obsolete industrial and social order.
