Financial Services Partnerships : Labor-Management Dynamics Hardback
Part of the Routledge Research in Employment Relations series
The purpose of this book is to evaluate the debate on partnership, using original research data.
Samuel provides a novel categorisation with which to synthesise and clarify a highly diverse literature on labour-management partnership, thus helping to refine the contemporary partnership debate.
Secondly, he clarifies the circumstances under which `effective' labour-management partnership is possible, while simultaneously elaborating why the achievement of `mutual gains' is highly improbable in a liberal-market context.
Thirdly, the book presents an integrated analysis of the interplay between macro-, meso- (industry) and micro-level factors.
Fourthly, the research design enables the study to go beyond the case studies to make defendable empirical generalizations at the level of the industry.
Finally, it advances a theoretical explanation of labour-management partnerships in `liberal market' economies by bridging two opposing neo-institutional positions in the social sciences.
