Trade Unionism Capital and Labour






Beynon H  (1985) Working For Ford Penguin, second edition with two new chapters and preface
Beynon H  (1973) Working For Ford, Penguin. The unleashing of academics on to the shop floor has been a mixed blessing for working people.Huw Beynon is an exception. Working For Ford is an absolute delight, a rare and valuable contribution to our understanding of work and grass roots trade unionism. We hear the shop floor speaking and its voice is raucous, rebellious and utterly irreverent. (David Wilson, The Observer 27 June 1973)
