The progress towards 1992 and the European Social Charter promise to draw UK industry further into the European pattern of employee relations. For many years Industrial Relations theory, in particular, has focused on our distinctive voluntarist and pragmatic tradition (Clegg, Flanders, Kahn‐Freund etc), while several Economic and Political writers (Marquand, MacInnes etc) have seen the associated patterns of strong trade union workplace organisation and anarchic, decentralised bargaining as major causes of Britain's economic decline.
