The Dunlop Commission: Missed Opportunity Or Failed Hegemonic Project

Authors

  • James Earhart

Abstract

The Clinton Administration has initiated reforms in industrial relations to assure current and future economic competitiveness.  Toward this goal, the Commission on the Future of Worker Management Relations (the Dunlop Commission) was called to order. This paper draws from these transcripts on workplace cooperation and explores the claims and policy assertions elaborated by each side.  I concluded that insurmountable differences exist between capital and labor in their interpretation of cooperation. Further, I contend that capital utilized the hearings to develop a hegemonic project whose final goal was the exclusion of labor from future policy discussions.
