MetadataShow full item record
The industrlal democracy in the West encompasses all changes leading to improvement of workers position in a company, Its main forms include expansion of reclprocal consultations and negotlations, participation of workers representatives in all company's managlng bodies, enhanced position of worker's councils as well as increascd autonomy of employees at all the lower levels belng effected through changes in the work organization. The very essence of the industrial democracy boils down to certain changes in capitalist production relations - changes which consist mainly in expanded workers control over production means. The burgeoisie in response to the working class demand admits co-participation of workers in decision-making processes within a company. Thus we are dealing here with significant changes in the aocial system of capitalism. The author puts forward a hypothesis that development of the industrial democracy is linked with construcrtion of a new stage in the capitalist system, the stage of "social capitalism", in which the society's attention will be focussed on problems of democracy of workers life and of the work environment.
