Remarkably, the core element of labour relations?wage determination?has been excluded from the European social dialogue about harmonisation of working conditions and national systems of social security. The present study responds by analysing the prospects of building up structures of wage formation in Europe through a reevaluation of collective bargaining and collective agreements as they exist under the law of the most industrialized Member States. The impetus for the study is the widely debated crisis of the system of concluding regional collective agreements on wages. Social partners seem to have been trapped in fruitless conflicts on how the system must be reformed. It has become obvious that no party concerned employers, trade unions, the state has the capacity to resolve the growing difficulties of collective wage formation. In an introductory essay by the distinguished editors, this important study takes the situation in Germany, the most prominent manifestation of this European crisis, as its starting point. Then, academic experts from France, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and Sweden describe comparable problems in their own countries, detail approaches to dealing with them, and provide a critical commentary, including judgements and suggestions in relation to the German case. Then follows a reexamination of the situation in Germany in the light of the experience of the other countries. A final chapter outlines some preliminary interpretations of European prospects. Salient issues investigated include the following: the erosion of such ideological and legal categories and concepts as `dependent work, `solidarity', `subsidiarity' and `social self-regulation' as preconditions of traditional collective bargaining structures at national level; the decreasing membership of the bargaining partners on both sides; the shrinking rate of employees covered by collective agreements; attempts to establish a national social pact; increasing competition on global markets; decentralizing management strategies, including the abandonment of collective bargaining; and, individualized employees. The authors examine the various state structures to determine if the legal and institutional developments of the different national systems of collective bargaining constitute starting points for mutual learning in order to meet the new challenges. This leads to a discussion of which practices are successful in their original environment, and how these practices might adapt to other systems in other countries.
Labour Law and Industrial Relations in Germany gives the reader a broad understanding of German labour law covering all important aspects. The book deals with the sources of labour law, individual employment relationships, collective bargaining, remuneration, working conditions, and dispute settlement.
Local government employees have a higher propensity to engage in collective bargaining than do private sector employees. Competition for scarce resources in the local budgeting process and the "battle of collective voices" among those requesting, paying for, and providing services provides the framework for this examination of the trend. Spengler concludes that the collective voice of taxpayer revolts of the 1970s and 1980s influenced employees in many local governments to pursue a collective voice strategy. Scholars, business practitioners, policy makers, and researchers in public administration, labor relations, public policy, and local government will find this study an important contribution to understanding the phenomenon of organized collective voice.

The A to Z of Industrial Relations in the Caribbean Workplace is a revision and expansion of the earlier successful publication of A-Z of Industrial Relations Practices at the Workplace by George Phillip. It comes against the background of a new era in Caribbean economic history and experience. Designed for both managers and workers in this new order, the A to Z offers useful strategies for understanding and handling absenteeism, strikes, fighting on the job, productivity and wage compensation. It emphasizes that the key to productive and positive relationship between managers and workers is the establishment of mutual trust in the workplace. This new project also recognizes and highlights the modern trend in disputes resolution, the preference for conciliation and alternative disputes resolution methods over litigation. The Caribbean's social and economic history has been fraught with conflict and confrontation, and as such, the region faces a particularly difficult challenge to use a more cooperative approach to resolving industrial relations problems. The Industrial Disputes Tribunal of Jamaica and the Industrial Court of Trinidad and Tobago have been highlighted for purposes of comparison and contrast. This feature has also been complemented with a selection of industrial relations cases from Barbados, Jamaica, and Trinidad and Tobago, suitably summarized and analysed. The A to Z is an excellent practitioner's guide as well as reference and guide for academics.
