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.
