Industrial Workers of Great Britain

The Shop Stewards’ Movement and Workers’ Control 1910-1922 by Branko Pribićević

This is the first chapter taken from the book with the above title. It is a brief look at how the concept of 'workers control' developed in the period of the 'syndalicalist revolt' and the subsequent development of the shop stewards movement. Despite Branko Pribićević being a political scientist in Tito's former Yugoslavia and member of the Central Committee of the League of Communists of Serbia. It is a fairly balanced and reasonable description looking at the three main currents;Industrial Unionism, Syndicalism and Guild Socialism.
