Abstract

This article examines how works councils in the West German automobile industry have influenced management approaches to technological change in three firms. The authors argue that while the post‐war industrial relations consensus in Germany can be increasingly questioned, car‐makers in the English speaking countries have important lessons to learn from their German counterparts.
