Trade unions: resurgence or perdition? An economic analysis

By David Metcalf

Abstract

Can private sector unions survive in Great Britain? How can unions respond to the challenges posted by performace-related pay, public-private partnerships and the internet? What lessons can be learned from trade unions' experience in Germany and the US? Trade Unions: Resurgence or Decline?is the third book in the innovativeTrade Unions in Britainseries. Featuring substantial and original research, this book takes a hard disciplinary approach--economics, organizational theory, history and social psychology--to offer readers a comprehensive analysis of unions' prospects in the new millenium. Case studies deal with such topical issues such as unions and the gender pay gap, the private finance initiative, performance-related pay and the unions' use of the internet. Written by many of the leading scholars on British unions, this book highlights union prospects--survival or resurgence?--and has important policy implications for all parties to industrial relations:unions, employers and government
