Abstract

Recent years have seen a considerable degree of change in the nature of employment relations, nowhere more so than in the UK's older industrial regions where new forms of work have partially replaced traditional activities. The author argues that such changes cannot automatically be read off as part of a wider transformation, but need to be firmly embedded within particular local social relations. Recognition of such complexities is necessary if suitable socialist strategies are to be developed.
