Overview

This book brings together research in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand to answer a series of key questions:* What opportunities do employees in Anglo-American workplaces have to voice their concerns and what do they seek?
• To what extent, and in what contexts, do workers want greater union representation?
• How do workers feel about employer-initiated channels of influence? What styles of engagement do they want with employers?* What institutional models are more successful in giving workers the voice they seek at workplaces?
• What can unions, employers, and public policy makers learn from these studies of representation and influence? The research is based largely on surveys that were conducted as a follow-up to the influential Worker Representation and Participation Survey (WRPS) reported in What Workers Want, coauthored by Richard B. Freeman and Joel Rogers in 1999 and updated in 2006. Taken together, these studies authoritatively outline workers' attitudes toward, and opportunities for, representation and influence in the Anglo-American workplace. They also enhance industrial relations theory and suggest strategies for unions, employers, and public policy.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Freeman, Boxall, and Haynes provide the results of comprehensive on employee "voice" and the implications of their findings for labor unions in six countries. . . . Of the countries studied, the US has the most rigid, outmoded form of employee voice. Highly recommended."—G. E. Kaupins, Choice, January 2008

"What Workers Say examines the voice that employees have, and want, in the workplace and the role played by unions, employers, and governments in expanding, or restricting, that voice. The authors are interested in assessing and comparing what forms of employee voice are able to meet the needs and wants of workers in six nations: Australia, Britain, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, and the United States."—Work and Occupations, Fall 2008

"A century ago, concerns about worker voice led to the recognition of trade unions as institutions that give workers voice. Globalization and other changes in the socioeconomic environment have created new obstacles on the road to giving workers voice in their workplaces. With its innovative use of data to address issues that are of great relevance and importance to the future of prosperous and sustainable societies, What Workers Say opens up many new fronts for thinking about the practice and promise of realizing worker voice."—Anil Verma, University of Toronto

"What Workers Say is a very useful addition to the literature. In summarizing research across the Anglo-American world it is invaluable to students, scholars, and policymakers."—Mick Marchington, University of Manchester
