ABSTRACT

REPRESENTATION OF EMPLOYEES IN COLLECTIVE BARGAINING WITHIN THE FIRM: VOLUNTARISM IN THE UK

Alan L Bogg

The UK system of worker representation was based historically on the ideology of voluntarism. This article analyses the continuing influence of voluntarism on the contemporary shape of worker representation in the UK. It argues that voluntarism continues to shape legal regulation of the collective bargaining process and consultation procedure. In conclusion, it suggests that voluntarism may need to be reappraised in the light of declining union influence and the European-led emergence of dual channel representation.
