    Notes: This article is based upon the findings of a survey which was directed at assessing the response of a public sector union to job loss amongst its members. The study was prompted by the anticipated effects on the union of cuts in public expenditure announced by Mrs. Thatcher's Government in 1979 and 1980. The purpose of the survey was, first, to investigate the processes through which job loss occurred and, secondly, to examine the ways in which the union contested those managerial decisions that affected the job security of its members. The main conclusion of the paper is that union resistance has been relatively sparse and it is suggested that this may be in part explained by the way in which job loss occurred. Of particular importance in this context is the loss of jobs through what we have called ‘job erosion’.

Considers the use of profit sharing as a rhetorical devicefor this purpose. The introduction of profit sharing schemes wasintended by management not only to assist in the construction of a newversion of organizational reality, but more particularly to communicateto organizational members the quite different ideologicalconceptualization of organizational purposes and activities associatedwith the change in status from public sector water authority to privatesector water company. Reports research based on documentary evidence andinterviews with managers from six of the new water companies whichprovides scope for comparisons between the companies high-lightingdifferent interpretations of the role profit sharing may play in theprocesses of organizational change.
