What Do We Know and What Should We Do About the Future of Work? (Paperback): Melanie Simms What Do We Know and What Should We Do About the Future of Work? (Paperback)
Melanie Simms
R263 R220 Discovery Miles 2 200 Save R43 (16%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

What Do We Know and What Should We Do About the Future of Work is part of a new book series offering up-to-date overviews of key issues of public concern based on social science research, featuring topics often misrepresented or simplified in the mainstream media. Written by a leading expert with an accessible writing style, this book on the future of work is a conversation starter and a way to spark informed, educated debate. It does this by providing illuminating, data-rich descriptions (what do we know?) and bold, prescriptive proposals (what should we do?). Questions which once seemed opaque are made clear, including - What is work? How does it relate to paid employment? Who works? Where, when, how do they work? How has work changed? Why does work matter? Are robots going to take our jobs? Will there ever be a post-work future? Intended for anyone seeking a quick and authoritative understanding of the future of work in the UK.

Union Voices - Tactics and Tensions in UK Organizing (Paperback): Melanie Simms, Jane Holgate, Edmund Heery Union Voices - Tactics and Tensions in UK Organizing (Paperback)

R476 R411 Discovery Miles 4 110 Save R65 (14%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In Union Voices, the result of a thirteen-year research project, three industrial relations scholars evaluate how labor unions fared in the political and institutional context created by Great Britain's New Labour government, which was in power from 1997 to 2010. Drawing on extensive empirical evidence, Melanie Simms, Jane Holgate, and Edmund Heery present a multilevel analysis of what organizing means in the UK, how it emerged, and what its impact has been.

Although the supportive legislation of the New Labour government led to considerable optimism in the late 1990s about the prospects for renewal, Simms, Holgate, and Heery argue that despite considerable evidence of investment, new practices, and innovation, UK unions have largely failed to see any significant change in their membership and influence. The authors argue that this is because of the wider context within which organizing activity takes place and also reflects the fundamental tensions within these initiatives. Even without evidence of any significant growth in labor influence across UK society more broadly, organizing campaigns have given many of the participants an opportunity to grow and flourish. The book presents their experiences and uses them to show how their personal commitment to organizing and trade unionism can sometimes be undermined by the tensions and tactics used during campaigns.
