Employee Relations in the Public Services: Themes and Issues

By Susan Corby; Geoff White | Go to book overview

government will require NHS trusts to involve staff and will establish a task force at national level to improve the involvement of front line staff in shaping new patterns of health care, and this will include NHS unions and employers (Department of Health 1998). At this juncture it is not known whether this friendlier environment, albeit with the employer strategies substantially unchanged, will lead to a growth in public service unionism or merely reduce the extent of the decline.
