Abstract

The UK strikes in the summer of 2022 interrupt narratives that downplay the reality of worker representation, with the teaching of industrial relations and labour law removed from a range of training and educational spaces. Miguel Martínez Lucio writes that as the collective dimension to work is discounted, individual performance-related systems bypass trade unions, corporate social responsibility gains rhetorical status, and workplaces resort to ‘wellbeing champions’ – who are less concerned with the underlying causes of the health problems they observe.
