“Partnering can range from just sharing information between two parties to full decision-making on the strategic business issues of a company. The problem begin when the concept of partnership is thrown out on the table with little regard for intent and clarity”. - Scott Gorgon, Effects of Comparative Labour Management Relationships
“The economic aspect of employment emphasizes competitiveness, productivity, and profitability (in other words, efficiency). But work is more than an economic transaction- it is a fully human activity with material and psychological rewards undertaken by human beings in a democratic society. As such, employees want and are entitled to fair treatment (equity) and opportunities to have input into decisions that affect them (voice).” - John Budd, Employment with a Human Face: Balancing Efficiency, Equity, and Voice
The Budd’s Model

Efficiency Rating Efficiency Used Resources
Applicability of Budd’s Model for Evaluation • • • • • • • • • • • Bargaining System Unionism Staff Recognition System Codes of Conduct Social Partnership Labour Market Competitiveness Employee-Employer Negotiation Staff Control Employee Empowerment Human Resource Development Government Regulation
