Workplace Relations in the Economic Crisis: A Comparison of a British and French Automobile Plant
Sociology & Anthropology
This study tests the hypothesis that recent changes in political direction in Britain and France would have changed the previous patterns of workplace relations in comparable automobile plants in the two countries. It finds that there have indeed been changes in the workplace balance of power and, as predicted, in productivity. Changes in the accident rate, however, are more difficult to interpret.
