About this title

Synopsis:

This volume analyses the 'modernisation' of work and employment in British public services, against the background of neo-liberal reforms that have redefined what is meant by the 'public sector'. In doing so, it critically engages with debates around the ideological, regulatory, economic and social drivers of change, and analyses their impact on the public service ethos, equality, payment systems and employment security. Since public services are increasingly offered by private operators, the volume also examines the changing roles and relationships that increasingly operate within fluid organisational boundaries, tackling the collective and organizational dynamics of recent changes, with particular attention being paid to the role of trade unions and partnership working at both the workforce and inter-organisational levels.

Review:

'...Dibben et al are to be congratulated on making a useful contribution to the debate.  The book succeeds in its stated aim of providing a comprehensive analysis of public-sector 'modernization' effects on the workforce.  Although it is comprehensive, it does not lack depth and the chapters are clear and generally well written throughout.' Philip Morgan, British Journal of Industrial Relations 46:1 March 08
