Kessler, Ian, Purcell, John and Coyle-Shapiro, Jackie (2000) The evolution of new forms of employment relations in the public services: The limits of strategic choice. Industrial Relations Journal, 31 (1). pp. 17-34.
Drawing on a strategic choice model, this article examines the extent to which public service organisations have used their newly established employment relations discretion. Constrained by external pressures and upstream decisions on purpose and structure, the exercise of genuine choice is seen to vary between organisations and according to the nature of the issue.
