"Organisational Change through Partnership" offers the most comprehensive account to date of partnership at enterprise level in Ireland. Based on a survey of all known cases of workplace partnership in the unionised sector, this study examines the reasons behind decisions to adopt partnership, the structures and agendas that employers and trade unions developed and the outcomes that ensued from partnership. The study provides strong evidence that a partnership approach to organisational change has positive outcomes for employers, employees and trade unions including better business performance, increased productivity, fewer disputes, improved communications and better relationships overall. The study addresses important questions such as who benefits most from partnership and why partnership is not more widespread given its apparent benefits. It concludes with a discussion of the strategic choices open to employers and trade unions now that they are confronting the necessity for painful changes in light of the current economic recession.
