ABSTRACT
The article discusses research which found that despite management and unions having positive partnership, the rewards on offer were a long way from what either desired. This example of rewards as the dysfunctional expression of the employment relationship provides insight into the importance of relations processes and practices. The idea that partnership-style employment relations can contribute to organisational success rests on the ability of managers, staff and unions to transform competitive bargaining into co-operative problem-solving approaches.
