Further Details
Abstract Investigates social tensions associated with the organizational changes of privatization in 44 Czech Republic industrial enterprises, based on interviews with 265 workers, trade union personnel, & managers regarding restructuring problems. Findings indicate that most problems developed between management & staff of the newly decentralized units; & trade union personnel had difficulty adjusting to the new organizations because of their role in influencing the positions of workers was not clear-cut. Also found were instances in which workers & management cooperated rather than conflicted over various issues. There were no strikes in any of these enterprises, likely due to socioeconomic stability. It is suggested that a lack of conflict may be a result of resignation or apathy to problems in the new organizations.
