A Comparative Case Analysis of Workplace Representation of Young Workers

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The purpose of this research project is to identify and examine successful cases of the inclusion of young workers in processes of worker interest representation. We know that institutions of workplace representation are faced with a generational dilemma, one that some would call a crisis. But we also believe there are solutions, and that systematic research can uncover the conditions under which young workers can be drawn into active participation in interest representation at the workplace. To do this, we develop an ambitious five-country comparative analysis, based on six in-depth case studies in each country. Our study focuses not so much on attitudes, problems, barriers, as on in-depth qualitative examination of best-practice cases in each of our five countries: France, Germany, the Netherlands, United Kingdom, and United States. By way of in-depth interviews with practitioners, causal process tracing, and comparative analysis within each country, we will specify the conditions for successful outcomes: inclusion, participation, and leadership development for workers up to the age of 35, in unions, works councils and committees. We will then deepen our understanding of causal processes with systematic cross-national comparative analysis. We know that workplace representation is a fundamental underpinning of a vibrant democratic society. Thus, if practices of workplace representation cannot attract young workers and develop new leadership, if they cannot reproduce themselves in the coming generations, the future of worker interest representation is everywhere in peril.
