Workersâ€™ Participation in Management, Workersâ€™ Control of Production
For several decades workersâ€™ participation in management was a persistent demand of the left. In the neoliberal era it became, in a twisted way, a reality for some workers. Team organization of production, reduction of supervisory staffing, and a constant drive for productivity improvement became the norm, requiring broader managerial involvement by workers in their activities. Workersâ€™ control of production remains on the radical agenda, but with broader implications. Workersâ€™ control of production implies dramatic changes in the relationship between capital and labor, and with them development of alternative forms of production and distribution.JEL classification: J54, B51, L23
