Employee Voice in Portugal: Exploring Alternative Trajectories and Channels of Voice

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


This chapter examines the established and newly developed voice trajectories and channels in Portugal, and the impact they have on the representation of workers at macro, meso, and micro levels. As trade union membership and influence decline, Portuguese employees may seek innovative and novel ways to express dissent and have their interests represented. This chapter follows conceptual and empirical approaches to explore and elaborate on three main areas: (i) workers’ motivations in building new and developing existing voice channels; (ii) the content and purpose of these different voice channels; and (iii) the outcomes in terms of voice effectiveness, employment conditions, and working lives.
