Abstract

THE critical importance of establishing effective relations between management and workers in relation to production has been noted in more than one report of the Select Committee on National Expenditure, and one of the main objects of the Joint Production Advisory Committees now being set up is to assist in such integration and to eliminate the misunderstandings which arise when, for example, workers are unaware of the real causes of idle time and other interruptions in production. This factor, it should be noted, is increasingly liable to operate as the mobilization of our industrial man-power and woman-power approaches its limits. There is less and less margin to prevent an interruption at one point causing delays and even more serious interruptions elsewhere.
