Glenda Maconachie, Richard B. Sappey

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

    Abstract

    Recent changes to trading hours in the Queensland (Australia) retail industry have highlighted the changing role of industrial relations institutions. An emphasis on consumption has been reflected in the recent overturning by a state government [ more ]of an industrial tribunal decision. The paper explores the implications for the relationship between product and labour markets and the use of regulation through industrial relations institutions. It is suggested that consumption is of increasing relevance for industrial relations theory and practice.
