This report sets out a vision of an economy with employees working with employers on the boards of companies, all sharing the aim of improving the business for all. It is a vision of the day-today work in companies being managed by cooperative committees of workers and managers working together. It is a vision of an economy where trade unions are strong and workers’ rights and levels of pay are high, but where companies are more profitable and industrial disputes are rare. By giving employees back their dignity and by using their expertise to improve businesses, everyone benefits. This vision is part of a wider vision for a Common Weal economy that is being developed across a number of papers and reports from the Reid Foundation.
