The "limited capital-labor accord": May it rest in peace?
Date of Original Version
This essay takes on a major pillar of the social structures of accumulation (SSA) literature: the "limited capital-labor accord." The accord is shorthand for an industrial relations structure based on job-control, politically conservative unionism, and state-regulated collective bargaining during the period of 1948-1973. Our essay shows how this stylized assumption of industrial relations history has been empirically rejected by labor and business history and industrial relations scholarship since the 1980s. © 2008 Union for Radical Political Economics.
