The rapid technological changes experienced throughout industry in the 1970s and '80s have radically altered the nature and experience of work for many people in both public and private sector employment. Increased production capacity and quality have been accompanied by changes in the way work is organised, and in the strategies adopted by both management and unions to tackle the new conditions with which they are faced.
