Voice and Non-Union
Voice and Non-Union Workplace
Employee Relations: The International Journal
Editor: Paul J.Gollan
Edition: Volume 27, Issue 3
The papers in this e-book examine the development of non-union employee relations practices and
outcomes from an international perspective focusing on firms attempting to provide workers with a voice.
The papers draw primarily on in-depth case studies as a means to assess the impact of voice
arrangements on employee relations processes and outcomes. While the case studies reveal a number
of positive outcomes for both employers and employees there is evidence that some employers are using
voice arrangements to marginalise employee representation and to curtail the influence of employees over
pay and employment conditions.
