The article informs that the main focus of the 1973-74 work programs of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)'s Industrial Relations Working Party will be on labor disputes, labor-management relations in the Enterprise, changes in workers' attitudes and motivation, decision-making in the enterprise, and the industrial relations problems of multinational companies. Changes are occurring very rapidly in all member countries in labor-management relations as a result of the changing attitudes and motivations of today's labor force. These new attitudes are leading to increased demands for greater involvement in decision making. The Wage Determination Program, which was designed by an eminent inter- national steering group in September 1971, has now culminated in an international conference, held in July 1973. Participants to the conference included a selected group of academics, government officials, trade unionists, and employers from OECD member countries. The aim of the conference was to stimulate discussion and thinking on various aspects of the wage determination process and its probable development in industrial societies.
