Abstract

challenges posted by performance-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 innovative trade Unions in Britain series. 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 millennium. 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.
