Worker’s Participation In The United States

The last few years have seen substantially increased American interest in various forms of workers’ participation in management. While it is too soon to say how much of this current interest will have lasting results, change is occurring more rapidly than seemed likely a few years ago (Strauss, 1979), and it is occurring on a wide variety of fronts. Indeed the 1980’s have turned out to be a period of great flux in labor-management relations and in management generally, with a great deal of experimentation occurring, particularly in large organizations.
