Knox, A. and Nickson, D.P. (2007) Regulation in Australian hotels: is there a lesson for the UK? Employee Relations, 29 (1). pp. 50-67. ISSN 0142-5455Full text not available in this repository. (Request a copy from the Strathclyde author)
The purpose of the paper is to compare employment relations in the hotel industry in Australia and the UK. Australian industry employment is regulated by the state and union recognition is enshrined. A substantial proportion of Australian hotel employers engage directly in firm-level bargaining with trade unions, with unionisation rates across the industry far higher than in the UK. The analysis focuses on employment strategies emphasising numerical/temporal and functional flexibility since efforts to enhance workplace flexibility underpin employment regulation in Australia.
