From the cover: “In 1960 the Esso Refinery at Fawley was the scene of an unprecedented departure from conventional collective bargaining. The Company offered its employees large increases in wage rates in return for their trade unions’ consent to specific changes in working practices. These included a drastic reduction in overtime, some relaxation of job demarcations and the redeployment of craftsmen’s mates. The aim was to raise productivity and distribute its benefits without causing an inflationary rise in costs.
