Resource description

This article analyses the new statutory representation structures which have been or are being put in place, concentrating on the decisions made about the choice of worker representatives. The structures in question contain: general information and consultation rights, mechanisms for making bargained adjustment to statutory standards, instruments of worker support and the statutory recognition procedure. The article proceeds, first, by developing a set of criteria by which it is argued the decisions about the choice of worker representatives should have been made and the relationships between them determined. It then proceeds to assess the decisions actually made against the criteria. It concludes that the choices actually made were deficient, notably by not giving precedence to the sufficiently representative trade union and by permitting direct representation by the individual employees themselves in too wide a category of case.
