This book considers the level where bargaining takes place and who makes the key strategic decisions. It argues that decentralization in bargaining, management’s increased autonomy, and the switch to a bundle of workplace practices that included teams, contingent pay, employee participation, training, and employment security amounted to a transformation in the United States.
