The current Labour Government in Australia considers collective agreements rather than individual-level agreements are the most efficient & productive form of workplace arrangements for business. Do you agree? Why? Why not?
Elements to consider in answering the question:
1. Employee voice: power, bargaining power, representation, employee involvement in the workplace.
2. Trade Unions – theories of the labour movement and their explanations – do they help us understand how employees’ rights and interests might be protected?
3. The State: how does the state preserve, protect or undermine employees’ interests and rights? How does the state impact on the balance of power between workers and employees?
