UK: MP calls for greater board-level employee representation
A Member of Parliament (MP) has called for greater representation of employees in the decision-making process at company board level.
In what he calls a ‘think piece’, Labour MP Jim Sheridan examines how workplace democracy can be enhanced (494 KB PDF) and considers the benefits of doing so. He suggests it would lead to better industrial relations and better outcomes for individuals in terms of their careers.
Published by the Centre for Labour and Social Studies (Class), the work is inspired by examples from Sweden.
