Employee “voice” and working environment in the New Member States: Translating policy into practice in the Baltic States
2009 (English)In: Workplace Health and Safety : International Perspectives on Worker Representation / [ed] David Walters and Theo Nichols, London: Palgrave/Macmillan , 2009, 1, 134-153 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
This chapter examines employee ‘voice’ in workplace health and safety in three Baltic New Member States by means of a cross-national survey. The data point to unresolved problems of voice in the context of rather poor working environments. These present opportunities for collective renewal by trade unions, but paradoxically are more likely to be addressed by employers in the context of significant labour shortages created by a post-European Union accession labour ‘exit’.
