Bezpośrednie formy demokracji przemysłowej w krajach Europy Zachodniej
The author his made an attempt at determining the role of new forms of work organization for the industrial life democratization in the West. Growing interest taken in these forms recently is connected with the fact that they allow to mitigate the difficulties accumulating in the enterprise. From among the analyzed forms of organization of work such as job rotation, job enlargement, job enrichment and autonomous groups, mainly the two last mentioned forms afford a higher autonomy for employees at their workplace. Many countries have elaborated central programmes for development of these forms. They differ from one another in goals of introduced changes. And thus, employers' programmes aim, first of all, at increasing labour productivity while trade union's programmes strive for growth of the industrial democracy.
