What can labor-management production committees accomplish, and how? The author examines the results of joint committee work in large and small plants both during the war and since, with special emphasis on the participation of rank and file workers and minor supervisors as well as that of union leaders and top management. She shows, with many concrete examples, what techniques have proved successful in improving the quality of products, the methods of production, and constructive employer-labor relations. Dorothea de Schweinitz was regional director of the NLRB for five years. Management, union leaders, students, and personnel people will find her study illuminating.
