The Causes of Industrial Disorder : A Comparison of a British and a German Factory, Hardback Book

The Causes of Industrial Disorder : A Comparison of a British and a German Factory Hardback

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: The German Economy series

Description

Originally published in 1983, this comparative study of day-to-day industrial relations in two closely matched factories in Britain and Germany, the author examines the causes of the disorder in British manufacturing industry.

The book describes how, in the absence of government in the British factory, workers took the law into their own hands in order to redress grievances over pay and to protect their position in the factory's earnings hierarchy.

In the German workplace, management and works council successfully administer orderly and equitable pay structures.
