Bibliographic information Office des publications officielles des Communautés européennes, 2985 Luxembourg, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, 1990. 17p. Illus. 2 ref.
Abstract This report outlines the findings of a survey on the opinions of managers and employee representatives in the European Community to employee involvement in technological change. The survey concentrated on mechanical engineering, electronics, banking, insurance and retailing. The report discusses participation at different stages, the political context and country differences. The survey showed a wide diversity in the forms of participation existing in individual countries. Types of participation that exist in Europe are seen to be a product of the way in which each country's industrial relations system has been shaped by wider political, economic, social and historical forces.
