In the last decade, nonunion employee representation (NER) has become a much discussed topic in the fields of human resource management, employment relations, and employment/labor law. This book examines the purpose, structure, and performance of various types of employee representation bodies created by companies in non-union settings to promote collective forums for voice and involvement at the workplace.
This unique volume presents the first longitudinal evidence on the performance, success, and failure of NER plans over an extended time period. Consisting of twelve detailed, in-depth case studies of actual NER plans in operation across four countries, this volume provides unparalleled evidence on such matters as: the motives behind the initial establishment of NER, different organizational forms of NER in industry, key success and failure factors over the long-term, pro and con evaluations for employers and employees, and more. Voice and Involvement at Work captures an unequalled international and comparative perspective through a wide cross-section of different NER forms.

This book addresses many unanswered questions concerning the nature of NER inside firms and both how these systems work `on paper' and how they evolve and influence companies and employees over time. The quality of the authorship assembled here is second to none. This is a volume that will be used by students and talked about by employment researchers for many years to come. - Rafael Gomez, Associate Professor in Employment Relations and Human Resources, University of Toronto, Canada
