Geographical and Occupational Mobility of Workers in the Aircraft and Electronics Industries, Regional Trade Union Seminar (Paris, 21st-22nd September, 1966). Final Report and Supplement.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France). Social Affairs Div.
The trade unions in the European aerospace and electronics industries have become concerned with the sweeping and rapid economic and technical changes taking place in the industries. This seminar enabled trade union representatives from Belgium, France, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom aerospace industry and the electronics sector working for the aircraft industry to discuss their problems and acquire an understanding of each other's attitudes and policies. The participants focused their argument upon the broad economic policies affecting the destiny of their respective national industries. The British delegation reported particularly upon the nature of the issues in their country and the alternatives they were considering to maintain employment for the present work force and the other three delegations supplied information on the issues in their countries. The outstanding conclusion to be drawn from these discussions is the high priority assigned by trade-unionists to broad economic and political policy when jobs are in danger and their expectations are being frustrated. Background papers, speeches, and supplementary papers are included. (HC)
