Having a say in how things are run

Two new publications examine ways in which workers’ views can be better represented in corporate decision making in the private and public sectors. The TUC’s ‘Beyond Shareholder Value – the reasons and choices for corporate governance reform’ is a wide ranging collection of 17 essays on various themes of which the most significant is that of representation, focusing on who participates in decision-making and proposes potential reforms including mandatory worker representation on company boards. The Scottish Government’s ‘Working Together Review: Progressive Workplace Policies in Scotland’ looks at industrial relations throughout Scotland, and how greater engagement between employers, trade unions and government could have a positive effect in workplaces, sectors and nationally.
